The Science, Technology and Innovation Policy for Lebanon was launched in Beirut on April 27, 2006 by the Director-General of UNESCO, Koïchiro Matsuura, and the Prime Minister of Lebanon, Fouad Sanioura, in the presence of all government ministers, UN agency representatives and the Lebanese scientific and academic communities. It was UNESCO which set in motion the formulation of a science, technology and innovation policy for Lebanon three years ago. The policy report is the fruit of the work of four task forces led by UNESCO consultant Peter Tindemans and involving prominent Lebanese scientists and international experts. The Policy is published by the National Council for Scientific Research (CNRS) in Lebanon.
Read an Executive Summary of the report (in Arabic, English and French). (A comprehensive report on the policy is soon to be available on this website.)
