By Dana K. Haffar

A proposal submitted by the School of Engineering to USAID-TIF (Trade Investment Facilitation project) to establish a pilot for local manufacturing/assembly and quality testing of PV (solar) modules in Lebanon has moved to the co-creation phase with industry partners. USAID, whose TIF project stimulates the local economy and key industry sectors, considered the proposal as one of the most impactful projects for Lebanon.
