Egypt: 25,000 Euros for Egyptian-French Scientific Program

About LE 200,000 was allocated for each scientific research project to be carried out within the coming two years under the Egyptian-French scientific cooperation program "Amenhotep" whose budget is estimated at 25,000 euros, Minister of Scientific Research Nadia Zakhari said.

As Egypt and France are keen on encouraging youth to do scientific researches, they launched this program in 2005, Zakhari said during a meeting Wednesday with French Ambassador Nicolas Galey on the sidelines of a celebration marking the announcement of selected projects to be implemented under the program.

The French Foreign Ministry and the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research bankroll the program along with the Egyptian Academy of Scientific Research and Technology (ASRT).

This program has enabled Egypt to gain the membership of the European Organization for Nuclear Research, Galey said.

More than 100 scientific projects in various domains were implemented under the Amenhotep program.
