2022 U.S. - Egypt Joint Fund Symposium

The 2022 Joint Fund Symposium was held virtually on January 10-11, 2022. Joint Fund collaborative research grantees from Cycles 17, 18, 19, and 20 displayed their research activities and future plans to other Joint Fund grantees and stakeholders in the U.S. and Egyptian scientific communities through virtual posters and presentations. The Symposium also served as a forum for participants to network and engage with other researchers. 

Joint Fund grantees received guidance from NAS and STDF program officers on programmatic policies and expectations. Past program grantees, as part of an alumni panel, discussed how the Joint Fund contributed to their research goals, and they provided lessons learned on how to succeed in the program. In addition, grantees from the four cycles had an opportunity to hold project meetings with NAS and STDF program officers.
