The INNOMED UP Project launch conference 

The conference will be held online on February 15, 2021, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Palestine time.

It will review the results achieved by the project in the first year of activities since its start in 2019.

The INNOMED-UP Project, which includes Birzeit University as well as other international universities, engineering firms, and governing bodies, focuses on integrating cultural and creative industries in circular economy strategies and initiatives across five Mediterranean countries. 


As Mediterranean cities face the problem of overwhelming waste production demanding effective and urgent actions, the INNOMED-UP Project proposes to work with cultural and creative industries (CCIs) to shift local urban economies towards a circular production and consumption paradigm including optimal use of material resources, innovation enhancement for SMEs, knowledge transfer among Med-cities, social inclusion, and citizen engagement.

The conference will showcase the experience of the partners in developing new solutions to the problem of urban waste by leveraging the know-how and creativity of CCIs that are present in the historical centers of the Mediterranean cities.
