Jordan Europe Wide Enhanced research Links in ICT

Objective

The 36-month JEWEL project gives Jordan the possibility to improve the research activities of their highest quality in the FP7 thematic priority “Information and Communication Technologies” (ICT), through twinning activities between one of the leading Jordan scientific and educational organisations Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST), with their long term partner the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece (AUTH).
A coherent development strategy for JUST (ICT sector) will be prepared, based on SWOT analysis and on the socio-economic analysis on Jordan, regional (Mediterranean) and European level. A twinning and joint research plan will be then agreed by the twinned partners and implemented.
Project includes several main types of activities, eg. twinning activities between JUST and AUTH, large-scale networking & brokerage activities, exchange of researchers and young specialists and organisation of joint events such as summer school and an international conference in Jordan; training and coaching activities, integration into the European networks and enhancing Jordan participation in FP7.
