Young Scientists

Amr Adly : "In Egypt, we have a reintegration fund to help young scientist return after their PhD"

Who are you?

My name is Amr Adly, I am Deputy Minister of Higher Education for University Affairs in Egypt. Of course, honored to be invited to this conference. Actually, young African scientists are among the top of African treasures. I just want to convey a message here in this event that African economy can only be boosted via science and technology and by relying on talented young scientists. Of course, opportunities have to be created in their home countries, and this would have a strong return on the national economies. And the message is funding R&D, funding higher education activities, is not “pour la forme“, it’s mainly for supporting the economy and for supporting national goals.

What about the funding of research in Africa?

Financing of research in Africa differs from one country to another. If we talk about my country, it actually offers so many programmes to support young Egyptians studying abroad. Most important of which is reintegration grant where a scientist toward finishing his PhD studies could apply to receive a hefty fund so that when he returns he could initiate some decent lab equipment to extend his research
