Recommendations

The Conference of the Association of Egyptian Scientists in Canada and America, which continued for three consecutive days, concluded several recommendations and proposals, foremost among which is the need to cooperate in research projects between scholars abroad and Egyptians at home, especially the universities, to be funded by the Academy of Scientific Research, Water and agriculture.

The participants also decided to discuss the cooperation frameworks between Ain Shams University and some universities abroad in the form of memorandums of understanding and agreements, establishing a database for Egyptian scientists abroad to benefit from their expertise in several fields. The lectures were delivered during the conference on YouTube Ain Shams or social networking sites so that all interested in the scientific fields can see and benefit more from the direct presence, in addition to enhancing the presence of children of the University of the Child in the conference to create a generation to absorb the knowledge and modern technology.
