Egyptian German Science Monitor - Issue 1
The Egyptian German Science Monitor is the newest publication produced by the German Science Centre in Cairo (DWZ). The aim of this publication is to gain a better knowledge of research trends in Egypt and Germany. This first edition of the Egyptian-German Science Monitor starts with the summary of a so-far unpublished evaluation of the Egyptian Science, Research and Technology landscape conducted by the Egyptian Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research and FraunhoferGesellschaft. The study will not only be of benefit for decision makers, but also for those cooperating with universities and the industry in Egypt.
In addition to this flagship article, this edition contains numerous contributions of various partner of the DWZ. It is addressing diverse subjects as the sustainable development of forestry in desert lands and teacher-training in German schools in Egypt, both representing best practice examples of EgyptianGerman cooperation. The Science Monitor also presents findings from ongoing investigations, such as research on desalination through solar energy. Two articles focus on current trends in Middle Eastern Studies. Another set of contributions deals with issues related to research dissemination and higher education management.
The Science Monitor is a rich panorama of Egyptian-German cooperation and encourages future initiatives.
