In 2015, the Jordanian government via the Higher Council for Science and Technology approached the EBRD to help strengthen the innovation ecosystem in Jordan through providing start-up finance for the establishment of the National Centre for Innovation (NCI) and its transition to full operation functionality. The first of its kind in Jordan, the NCI will be a national hub for all matters related to innovation, in both the public and private sectors, enhancing its policies and programmes to foster a growth-focused economy through better coordination, information and monitoring of all innovation-related activities. The NCI will be officially launched during the EBRD’s Annual Meeting in the presence of Princess Sumaya and other government officials and EBRD President Suma Chakrabarti.
