Tunisian-Japanese project launched to support over 100 young entrepreneurs

A Tunisian-Japanese technical cooperation project aimed at strengthening human resources capacities in support of start-ups operating in the information and communication technologies sector was launched on Monday in Tunis.

Initiated by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the University of Aizu (UoA), the Higher Institute of Information Technology and Communication (ISTIC) of the University of Carthage, this project targets the support of more than 100 young entrepreneurs, especially women, according to JICA.

As part of an agreement signed between the Tunisian and Japanese parties in October 2022, the said project aims to improve the institutional capacity of ISTIC, so that it can strengthen its human resources development courses in connection with the support of start-ups in the ICT sector.

In this context, training courses will be organised for ISTIC students and teachers in Tunisia and Japan.

This project, which ends in 2025, aims to make ISTICL “one of the leaders in Tunisia in this field so that many entrepreneurs benefit from its services.
