Investing in the Mediterranean: MedGeneration project to support Diaspora entrepreneurs from Jordan, Lebanon and Palestine

A call for projects to select and support promoters from the Jordanian, Palestinian and Lebanese Diasporas based in Europe and holding an economic project in their country of origin, has been launched by the MedGeneration project.

The call aims to establish direct cooperation between local actors responsible for the implementation and creation of enterprises and economic Diaspora networks to identify, qualify and select investments and business partnership projects and support their implementation.

MedGeneration will assist them in this process, providing operational and customised support (travel, help for feasibility studies, meetings with partners etc.).

Ten projects will be selected per country. The application deadline is 15 February 2015.

For more information, please contact: projectdiaspora@medgeneration.eu
