Center of Excellence for Energy – Research, Education and Entrepreneurship – is established by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID), in cooperation with the
Egyptian Ministry of Higher Education that will help the Egyptian universities to produce high quality applied research in energy, deliver world-class training in engineering, and create a dynamic energy innovation ecosystem focused on meeting private sector challenges and contributing to economic growth. This project is implemented by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) over five years (2019 - 2024). Center of Excellence for Energy will form national energy policy, link research into renewable energy solutions with entrepreneurs, promote energy efficiency, and develop innovative applied research solutions utilizing both conventional and alternative energy sources. Internationally recognized leaders in engineering, conventional energy technology, and research on alternative energy sources implement the Center of Excellence for Energy, including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Center host Ain Shams University.
