Advanced Studies Institute


The US-Egypt Advanced Studies Institute (ASI) on “Nanomaterials and Nanocatalysis for Energy, Petrochemicals and Environmental Applications” will be held March 27 – April 5, 2010 in Cairo, Egypt.

The ASI is sponsored by the US National Science Foundation and will be hosted by the National Research Centre (NRC) of Egypt in Cairo. The ASI will provide education and training for both U.S. and Egyptian graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in the state-of-the-art, cutting edge research areas of nanomaterials and nanotechnology with specific focus on nanocatalysis research for energy, petrochemicals and environmental applications.

The ASI will include 10-12 Professors and research leaders, 15 graduate students and 5 postdoctoral scholars from the United States and an approximately equal number of Egyptian participants.
