Amsterdam – WEBWIRE

In recognition of the longstanding partnership between the Egyptian Knowledge Bank (EKB) and Elsevier, Youngsuk “YS” Chi, the chairman of Elsevier, will meet with several high-level officials of Egypt’s Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research to discuss Egypt’s research impacts achieved through the collaboration with EKB.

Supported by the relationship between Elsevier and EKB, Egyptian researchers have progressed in putting forth impactful research, particularly as related to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). For example, according to research conducted by Elsevier at the behest of EKB, Egyptian research related to UN SDGs strongly drove Egyptian research, outputs and impacts, and was highly collaborative, showing impressive engagement with international researchers to address the global challenges of sustainability:

  • 6,113 articles. Conference papers and reviews related to the UN SDGs have been published by researchers from Egypt.
  • Almost a third of Egypt’s research output is related to the UN SDGs.
  • Egypt’s SDG-related research grew by 17% annually, a rate more than double the global average.
  • Half of Egypt’s SDG-related research publications were the result of international collaboration.

Further, in support of Egypt’s national strategic goals:

  • Elsevier produced an analytical report related to renewable energy, presented during the Egypt-hosted COP27. In the report, Elsevier honored Egypt by profiling a success story about solar energy.
  • Through the Big Data project, Elsevier will help Egypt to allocate resources to drive more efficiency within the research community.

Mr. Chi’s visit to esteemed experts in Egyptian research reflects Elsevier’s pride in supporting Egyptian researchers through the cooperation with EKB.

On 18 December, Mr. Chi and Prof. Dr. Ayman Ashour, Egypt’s Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MoHESR), will meet to discuss the multiple impacts of and continuous improvements in Egypt’s research ecosystem, borne through the EKB-Elsevier partnership, including:

  • University rankings and country developments, as aligned with the Egypt Vision 2030.
  • Increasing the visibility of Egypt’s scholarly journals.
  • Aligning Egypt’s research landscape with goals set forth in Egypt Vision 2030 and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
  • Enhancing skills through customized capacity-building activities for researchers at different stages of their careers, from early-career to senior researchers.

Mr. Chi noted, “We at Elsevier are proud to support the Egyptian government in pursuit of its national goals for improving scientific discovery and innovation. Through our partnered efforts, we are improving research output, impact and collaborations, particularly in areas of import to the UN SDGs. We remain committed to our strategic relationship and look forward to building on these outstanding achievements in the coming years.”

Prof. Dr. Ayman Ashour stated, “With the Egyptian Knowledge Bank, the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research embarked on a partnership with Elsevier for the benefit of the Egyptian research community and for insight into our initiatives, linking research production to entities able to apply, implement and develop various actions for the nation’s development. Egypt is fundamentally committed to improving universities’ educational and research services to meet the future needs of industry and local communities.”
