The purpose of this grant is to foster further collaboration between the UK and Egyptian higher education sectors. It is part of the work of the British Council in higher education and science which aims to extend, strengthen, and deepen connections between the UK education sector and the Egyptian sector. It is motivated by the belief that international collaboration produces more effective research for addressing global problems, while enhancing teaching and learning to produce graduates with the skills necessary for economic development.

Two grants of around £30,000 will be provided to UK university, or consortia of universities, to partner with universities or consortia of universities from Egypt for running a project that will support greater internationalisation of HE institutions and transnational education (TNE).
