Building of Technology-Transfer Centers in Egypt

The start-up support of the Freie Universität Berlin profund facilitated the establishment of four technology centres in Egypt, which were opened at the American University in Cairo, as well as Cairo University, Asyut University and Helwan University in 2010. The project was funded by the European Union. It aims at transfering research results from the Egyptian universities to the local economy and thus strengthening their innovation capacity. The cooperation took place over three years.
