History 1982-1992 Training and Scientific visits Topics: Medicine and Fundamental Science 1993-2000 Technical Training in Chemistry Cultural visits Cultural Exchange Present time 2001-2005 Agreement on Strategic partnership Training of lectures in modern science
RATIONALE OF COOPERATION IN OUR COOPERATION WITH THE GERMAN SIDE WE PLAN TO COBINE THE GERMAN EXPERIENCE AND THE EGYPTIAN NEEDS. This combination reflected in the following: New materials Nanotechnology Information and Computer Technology Biotechnology and Biochemistry Diagnosis of regional diseases Laser and Applications Cultural Exchange
RUNNING PROJECTS WITHIN THE DIES PROGRAM PHASE I: STRATEGIC PLAN FOR SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY Restructuring the higher education system to serve S&T strategic plan. Research plan for developing industrial sectors (Science Park). Improving the Scientific infrastructure. Information and Computer Science.
RUNNING PROJECTS WITHIN THE DIES PROGRAM PHASE II: STRATEGIC PLAN FOR HIGHER EDUCATION DEVELOPMENT The two universities are planning to expand their cultural cooperation in the region area including Africa, Arab World, and Europe. The goals are: Unification of higher education system. Establishing a training program for higher education management. Technology transfer to strengthen higher education reform activities.
