Collaboration with Zewail City of Science and Technology Zewail City of Science and Technology is a not-for-profit, independent institution of learning, research and innovation. The concept of the City was proposed in 1999 and its cornerstone laid on 1 January 2000. After many delays in its establishment, the 25 January 2011 revolution brought a revival to the project with an Egyptian Cabinet of Ministers’ decree on 11 May 2011. The project was labeled by the Cabinet a National Project of Scientific Renaissance and named Zewail City of Science and Technology. On 20 December 2012, President Mohamed Morsi signed a special law for Zewail City that will allow students to enroll at the university and Egypt to begin a new era of modern development in scientific research and technological production.
