We’ve all heard of Ada Lovelace, Sameera Moussa and Marie Curie, but there are many more women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) that deserve our attention.

Since the launch of the Newton Mosharafa Fund in Egypt, there have been many incredible and inspiring women who have played a key role in finding solutions to challenges facing our country.

The Newton Mosharafa Fund is £50 million, seven-year science and innovation partnership between the UK and Egypt. The Fund brings together the British and Egyptian scientific research and innovation sectors towards achieving economic development and social welfare.

Supported by Newton funding, several female researchers have been able to achieve remarkable steps in fields ranging from sustainable water management and renewable energy, to cultural heritage and affordable and inclusive healthcare.
