Innovation Center

The AASTMT Leather Technology Center is a state-of-the-art leather center inside Abou Kir campus of the Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport. The leather center is established under the umbrella of the Erasmus+ funded project titled INNOVATION FOR THE LEATER INDUSTRY IN JORDAN AND EGYPT “INNOLEA”.

INNOLEA is one of the Erasmus plus three years long program projects, which aims to fill an apparent gap in the area of specialized services for the leather sector with the establishment of four leather centers in local universities, two in Jordan and two in Egypt, utilizing the experience and expertise of EU partners in the area of services for the leather sector.

AASTMT is one of the partners in the INNOLEA project in which the Egyptian leather technology center was established. Since its establishment in 1972, AASTMT has achieved a remarkable and sustained progress as a specialized organization, a top-level house of expertise and a highly reputable technical arm for the Arab League. Today, AASTMT’s vision is to be recognized as a worldwide center of excellence for maritime and college education according to international standards of education, scientific research, innovation, and training. While fulfilling its community service responsibilities, it seeks to maintain its status as a distinguished Arab house of excellence and first choice for students regionally and internationally.

CITL is the college that represents the Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport (AASTMT) as a partner in the INNOLEA project and was responsible for conducting all related activities. AASTMT has provided the study of the management of international transport and logistics since 1995 to cope with the trends in the global business market. AASTMT has established the College of International Transport and Logistics (CITL) which is the only college in the Middle East and North African regions to offer bachelor’s degree in Management of Trade Logistics and International Transport in both the Arabic and English languages.

The INNOLEA Leather Technology Center of AASTMT was established inside and is being managed by the Industry Service Complex. Based on the Arabic and regional role for AASTMT, it established The Industry Service Complex (ISC) in 2004. It aims at facilitating the process of transferring modern technology and providing the different industrial sectors with consultancy and highly qualified technical staff, that contributes to developing the Arab communities.
