Gender Equality in Higher Education

The project Gender Equality in the Egyptian Higher Education System aims at establishing a transnational dialogue on gender equality in higher education and at developing and implementing equal opportunity measures at Egyptian universities. During the three-year project phase an exchange of knowledge and experience will be conducted through delegation visits, workshops, mentoring, and trainings as well as through the set-up of electronic environments of communication, collaboration and studying.

The project is a cooperation between Freie Universität Berlin, the Universities of Cairo, Alexandria, Sohag, and South Valley, and the Strategic Planning Unit of the Egyptian Ministry of Higher Education. It is funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) within the program "Transformation Partnerships with Universities in Egypt and Tunisia".
