Center of Excellence for Innovative Projects
The Center of Excellence for Innovative Projects was established at Jordan University of Science and Technology to provide the appropriate, technical environment to support and sponsor innovators from both the university and local community.
The center has a range of facilities and services to support and sponsor innovative people; develop their skills and innovativeness–starting from creating the initial product; passing on to the service model; and finally the establishment and the commercial launch of small businesses.
On March 2019, UNICEF Jordan Country Office signed an agreement with Jordan University of Science and Technology to host Bassmati’s Climate and WASH Innovation Hub at the center.
