The U.S.-Egypt Science and Technology Joint Board approved fifteen collaborative research projects in health, water, agriculture, technology, and energy totaling $4.5 million last week in Washington, D.C.  The Joint Board also agreed to send ten young Egyptian scientists to the United States to conduct research in their areas of specialization.

“One of the greatest strengths of the program is that it promotes collaboration between Egyptian and American scientists to address development challenges,” said Dr. Mary C. Ott, USAID Assistant Administrator for the Middle East. “The person-to-person relationships established among scientists during this time have contributed to a global culture of critical thinking, respect, and cooperation.”
