The Atlas of Islamic-World Science and Innovation study explored the changing landscape of science and innovation across a diverse selection of countries with large Muslim populations in the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Working closely with partners in each of the countries, the project charted the delicate interplay between science, innovation, culture and politics and explored new opportunities for partnership and exchange with the wider world.
The report, published by the Royal Society, is the second in the Atlas of Islamic-World Science and Innovation series.
The research was undertaken in collaboration with various partners including the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), COMSTECH, ISESCO, the Royal Society, Nature, British Council, the International Development Research Centre of Canada and Qatar Foundation.
The report includes a survey of Egypt’s current Science, Technology and Innovation landscape, its history, areas of strength, policy framework and institutions relevant to STI, as well as an assessment of the contemporary challenges and opportunities to research and scientific advancement.
