AMMAN — During a recent workshop held by the Economic and Social Council at the National Agricultural Research Centre (NARC), Director General of NARC Nizar Haddad signed agreements to accept pioneering projects to the centre’s Agricultural Innovation Incubator.

This measure comes under an initiative that was first launched in February 2019 to offer a comprehensive package of technical consultations and logistical support for new projects to allow them to benefit from research programmes at NARC, for the purpose of preserving the sustainability of those pioneering projects and making those in charge “more qualified and competitive”, according to a NARC statement.

Haddad highlighted in the statement the “success of the previous projects” in the incubator, while director of NARC’s Intellectual Property Protection Unit Ammar Hattar said that nine projects have joined the incubator so far and the chance for more is “still open”, according to the statement.
