On July 31st, 17 people representing 25 partners from Lebanon , Tunisia , Jordan , and Palestine met to exchange experiences and explore collaboration opportunities as part of SPARK’s program in collaboration with the EU “From Innovation to Creation”. The initiative is organized by Bloom with plans to hold these meetups on monthly basis.
The meeting was a great opportunity for everyone involved. We learned a lot from each other about our different experiences in the innovation support field. We also identified several areas where we could collaborate, such as collective databases, resources and knowledge sharing.
In addition to the learning and collaboration, the meetup was also a chance to build community. We got to know each other better and developed a sense of camaraderie. We are all excited to continue working together to support innovation in the region. We also had the chance to share our secret recipes for a productive week , and the types of music we listen to while working .
Here are some lovely and exciting announcements shared by the partners in the meetup:
- Ruwwad has finally got the officials’ approval on the funding to start working on the planned project with SPARK.
