A memo seeking to promote cooperation in the fields of science and technology was signed between Jordan and Spain on Sunday.3rd December 2017.

The memo was signed on behalf of the Higher Council for Science and Technology (HCST) by its Secretary General HE. Dr. Khaled Elshuraydeh and General Director of Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI) Francisco Perez in the presence of Spain's Ambassador in Amman HE. Ms.Aranzazu Davalos.

The MoU aims to strengthen the scientific and technological cooperation between Jordanian and Spanish institutions and research entities, in order to reach collaborative technological alliances, and develop projects in areas of mutual interest.

The memo also seeks to enhance the exchange of expertise, knowledge, learning, capacity building and awareness-raising within both countries.  The aim of the MoU is to "transfer the outputs of scientific research into concrete services benefiting the industry and business fields.

The project will be implemented through the launch of mutual “Calls for Proposals” targeting Spanish and Jordanian parties with common interest.  Each country will be supporting their local institutions, and they will be working towards a continuous exchange of knowledge.

The general framework will be based on “Technology Transfer”, which will help connect the scientific sector with the business community, including the industrial sector. This process will benefit the business community, by providing solutions to their needs and challenges through scientific research.

This project aims at supporting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) working in the key sectors of the Jordanian economy, mainly water, energy, food, and health, and will be implemented by the Scientific Research and Industry Development Fund, which is affiliated with the HCST.

The Higher Council for Science and Technology (HCT) is the 'national umbrella' for all scientific and technological activities, and is Jordan's window for any cooperation with other countries in these fields.
