IDEAL TEMPUS project update

On May 11, 2015, the Office of Grants and Contracts at the American University of Beirut (AUB) will host a one day workshop on the “ABC of Technology Transfer & Innovation in Academia.”The workshop aims to highlight the significance of intellectual property rights protection in research institutions and universities as well as pinpoint the important role of transferring new technologies to industry can play in enhancing economic growth.

This workshop is part of the “Innovation and Development of Academic-Industry Partnerships through Efficient Research Administration in Lebanon” (IDEAL) project which is coordinated by the Office of Grants and Contracts at AUB and funded by TEMPUS IV program of the European Union.

IDEAL is a three year project which has been awarded a budget of around nine hundred thousands Euros and has a consortium of sixteen European and Lebanese partners.  The project aims at developing systems capable of supporting and promoting relevant research at Lebanese HEIs, creating networks to transfer innovation from academia to industry and establish professional structures between government, academia and industry for the long term management of RD&I outcomes for Lebanon.
