Innovators invited to apply for US-Egypt Tech Transfer Hybrid Training

Habiba Hamdy , Sunday 27 Aug 2023

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has introduced a transformative US-Egypt Technology Transfer Hybrid Training Program, inviting innovators to apply before the 7 September deadline and contribute to tech transfer collaboration between the two countries.



The program aims "to promote scientific research and foster increased collaboration between U.S. and Egyptian public and private sector institutions", the USAID affirms on the application page.

Financed through the US-Egypt Science and Technology (S&T) Joint Fund, the program seeks to support a fresh generation of innovators ready to propel scientific research and promote economic growth through commercialized technological innovation.

The program's workshops in Cairo will run from October 2023 and stretch into Spring 2024. Complementing these in-person interactions is a comprehensive online curriculum from October to June.

A select group of trainees will be honoured to attend the esteemed California AUTM conference in February.

The AUTM- the Association of University Technology Managers - is a non-profit organization that supports academic research, best practices, and technology transfer initiatives.

Exclusive to Egyptian nationals residing within the country, the program especially welcomes participants affiliated with local entities and boasting work experience in technology transfer.

Proficiency in English is a must, as training sessions will be conducted in this language.
