From Innovation to Creation
As the Middle East and North Africa region needs to adapt to complex environmental issues, as well as rapidly deteriorating socio-economic forecasts, young and pioneering entrepreneurs can take the lead to transition into a greener, ecological and sustainable future.
The From Innovation to Creation programme strengthens innovation through supporting cluster cooperation and start-up ecosystems in the South Neighbourhood countries. Through a 4-year programme financed by the European Union, SPARK is strengthening innovation and startup ecosystems, together with two of its strategic partners, IACE (based in Tunisia) and Ruwwad (based in Jordan), and its local implementation partners in Palestine (Flow, Intersect, PICTI, Station J, Technopark, UCASTI), Jordan (TTI), Lebanon (Injaz, LLWB, The Nawaya Network) and Tunisia.
The activities will accelerate the current development trend towards scaling and equipping ecosystems with the means to replicate their best practices. Furthermore, the project will enhance the start-up environment in the four countries through advocacy and regional exchange.
