Orange Jordan and the European Union held a media roundtable to discuss their joint project, the Innovation Space, a three-year program co-funded by the EU’s “Innovation for Enterprise Growth and Jobs” program “Innovate Jordan”. The project received a €7.3 million grant from the EU to create a space that promotes innovation and digital economy in the kingdom.

“Innovation Space is an exciting project, where the European Union partners with Orange Telecommunications Company to promote digital culture and digital skills, especially among women and youth, and nurture digital entrepreneurship for digital economic growth,” EU Ambassador to Jordan, H.E. Maria Hadjitheodosiou noted.

Speaking of the project’s objectives, CEO of Orange Jordan Thierry Marigny noted that the company will be establishing a space for promoting innovation and digital economy, as the current network of Orange Digital Centers will expand to reach 29 new locations across the Kingdom.

He said that over three years, the Innovation Space will be an ideal destination for talented women and youth to showcase their innovative ideas and projects, while they receive the accredited programs at the digital centers, adding that entrepreneurs’ skills will be developed through market networking and startup growth accelerators.
