Enhancement of Jordan-European S&T Partnerships

Objective

EU-JordanNet aims at increasing the research cooperation between Jordan and Europe. Although Jordan has been quite active in EU Framework Programmes over the past few years, awareness of the EU Programmes in Jordan and of the Jordanian research community in Europe still needs considerable improvement. In concrete terms, EU-JordanNet will carry out a Capacity Building Programme to support the Jordanian NCP and the national network of FP7 contact points in universities and research centres to enhance their understanding of the structure and the procedures of the FP7 Co-operation and People Programmes. EU-JordanNet will carry out a major S&T Awareness and Co-operation campaign on FP7 in Jordan addressing Jordanian researchers and the private sector. It will focus on three Thematic Areas: Health, ICT and Environment. Since the People Programme has received limited attention in Jordan in the past, a specific awareness activity will focus on the new Marie Curie activities, aimed at increasing the mobility of researchers between Jordan and Europe. EU-JordanNet will train Jordanians on how to write FP7 proposals and help them in creating partnerships with EU researchers. Furthermore, it will identify the priority areas for S&T co-operation between Jordan and the EU and promote the Policy Dialogue with the relevant policy makers in Jordan to enable a targeted national research strategy. A number of activities are planned to support these two main aims: an Information and Partner Service with a directory of Jordanian and European researchers that will serve as a .partner-search facility and an inventory of existing Jordan-EU co-operation. The project will also develop an S&T Observatory on Jordanian Research and Technology co-operation with Europe, enabling the research institution in Jordan to grasp in quantitative and qualitative terms its position in Jordanian and world scientific and technological production.
