Zewail City of Science and Technology
Zewail City of Science and Technology is a nonprofit, independent institution of learning, research and innovation. The concept of the City was proposed in 1999 and its cornerstone laid on January 1, 2000. After numerous delays, the project was revived by the Egyptian cabinet's decree on May 11, 2011 following the January 25 Revolution. The Cabinet labeled it a National Project for Scientific Renaissance and named it Zewail City of Science and Technology. On December 20, 2012, a special presidential law for Zewail City was signed, allowing students to enroll at its university and Egypt to begin a new era of modern development in scientific research and technological production.
