Research and Development

Lebanese exporters wishing to conduct research to improve their production processes or introduce a new product to sell in the local and international markets can benefit from the support offered by the Government through applied research grants.


Center for Innovation and Technology (CIT) at the Industrial Research Institute (IRI) provides innovation vouchers for researchers or companies or universities/research institutes up to USD 6,000 to cover some of the costs related to consulting and research, prototyping…in order to create a new product, new process, or to come up with innovative new business model.


Lebanese Industrial Research Achievements (LIRA) Program is a national program by the Ministry of Industry aimed at building effective cooperation between industry, academia and research centers to address the research and development needs of the Lebanese industry. Lebanese exporters looking to develop a new innovative product or process can request the assistance of academics to help them in the research and development of their project. Once the project objectives and activities are defined, the exporter can apply for funding from LIRA to help them partially finance the costs of the applied research (maximum ceiling of USD 3,000).
