A Science and Technology Innovation Policy Strategy Consultation workshop was organized by the UNESCO Amman Office to bring together stakeholders from different science and innovation groups in Jordan (scientific institutes, universities and ministries) to review the draft national strategy on science, technology and innovation policy for Jordan.

The workshop was held at the Jordanian Higher Council for Science and Technology in December 2012, during which the attendees worked towards: i) highlighting the issues that need to be reviewed in the National Policy and Strategy for Science, Technology and Innovation; ii) compiling the different views on the Policy Strategy document; and iii) supporting the adoption of the document by institutions and relevant authorities.

The results from the workshop will be incorporated by the Higher Council for Science and Technology into the final draft of the National Policy strategy document that is to be submitted for government vetting.

This workshop took place within the framework of the UNESCO project for the development of science, technology and innovation policy and strategy for Jordan for 2012-2015 that is funded by the Japanese government.
