  1. Science and Technology Development Fund: Supporting Research and Technology Development Eng. Mohamed Nagaty Innovation Manager November 22nd, 2010

  2. S&T governance system reform Higher Council for Science and Technology Science and Technology Development Fund Background

  3. STDF Objectives • Funding scientific research and technology development; • Supporting the complete cycle of innovation; • Disseminating information on S&T in Egypt; and • Developing and monitor S&T indicators.

  4. Challenges • Absence of a National Strategy for S&T • Human Resources • Incomplete Cycle of Innovation

  5. Challenges: National Priority Areas for S&T • New and Renewable Energy • Desalination and Water resources • Life Sciences (Medical science, Pharmacy) • Food and Agriculture • Space Technology and Applications • Information and Communication Technology • Social Sciences and Humanities

  6. Human Resources Brain drain Challenges: Human Resources

  7. Challenges : Innovation Cycle • Basic research, output is scientific papers • Applied research, output patents • Technology development, output is prototype • Product development, output is products

  8. Challenges: Incomplete Cycle of Innovation National Science Foundation, 2008, Science and Engineering Indicators 2008

  9. Challenges • Incomplete Cycle • of Innovation Chart of Papers in Biotechnology in Developing Countries

  10. Challenges • Incomplete Cycle • of Innovation Chart of Patents in Biotechnology in Developing Countries

  11. Facing the Challenges: STDF Action Plan • Main Pillars • Funding Mechanisms • Technology commercialization • Science and Technology Foresight • Partnerships

  12. Funding Mechanisms • National Research Grants • Joint Research Grants • Targeted Calls • Capacity Building • Innovation • Partnership with IMC

  13. Funding Mechanisms National Research Grants Young Researcher Basic & Applied Reintegration • Ph.D. from a reputable Uni. • < 35 yrs. • 3 Years • L.E 1,500,000 • L.E. 5 million (establishing a lab) • YR based inEgypt • < 40 yrs. • 3 Years • L.E 600,000 • Any researcher(s) based • in Egypt • 3 Years • L.E 1,000,000 • Landscape for R&D community • Capacity building • Minimize brain drain • Landscapefor R&D • community • Capacity building • Brain Gain • Strengthening R&D • community

  14. Funding Mechanisms Targeted Calls Agriculture Water Water Desalination Improvement of Sustainable Food Production Renewable Energy HCV • Epidemiology of • HCV infection • HCV diagnostic • modalities • HCV therapy • HCV prevention • Wind Energy • Solar Energy: CSP & PV • Peaceful applications of • Nuclear Energy • 1.5 MW Wind Turbine

  15. Funding Mechanisms Joint Research Grants Egyptian Italian Cooperation US-Egypt Joint Research Grants Egyptian German Research Fund (GERF) • Promote S&T cooperation • All Fields of Science • Research Up to $250,000 • Integrated Science up to $750,000 • Junior Scientists visits • Research planning & development • Joint workshops • Under Negotiations • Innovative oriented joint research • Up to € 200.000 Egyptian French Cooperation Egyptian Japanese Scientific Cooperation • Research up to € 300.000 • Mobility • Chairs of Excellence • Mobility and Seminars • On going negotiations with JST

  16. Funding Mechanisms Capacity Building Instrument Development & Acquisition Instrument Maintenance • Purchase of equipment up to L.E. 5 M • Development of equipment up to L.E. 10 M • Institutional Grant • Must be aligned with an • institutional long term plan • Maintenance of equipment up to L.E. 5 M • Institutional Grant • Must be aligned with an • institutional long term plan

  17. Funding Mechanisms: Innovation Fund • Funding scientific innovation and its development till the development of prototype. • Overcoming the technological risk • Support scientists with scientifically and practically established innovation. • Possible future support of successful technologies to overcome business risks and market risks. • Grants up to L.E. 5 M • Projects from 2-4 years

  18. Funding Mechanisms: Partnership with Industry • Joint fund with the Industrial Modernization Center • Servicing all Industrial Sectors • L.E 100 million • 5 funding schemes

  19. Technology Development Product Development Basic Research Applied Research Partner Prototypes Products PC PC PC PC PC PC PC PC PC PC Patents Papers Technology Commercialization • STDF Technology Venture Management Company

  20. Intellectual Property Rights STDF an assignee STDF not an assignee Product Development Phase Applied Research • STDF will guarantee from 15- 20% to the inventor • Inventor/ or a third party covers patenting process fees • 10% to STDF for the initial incubation of the research • STDF covers patenting process fees

  21. STDF Achievements • All Grant Schemes Success rate is 20%. • 398 projects were accepted for funding with a total • budget of L.E 377 million

  22. STDF Achievements • STDF-IMC Projects • 60 funded project with total budget of 41.7 M
