Title

Review of Egypt Science and Technology System: SWOT analysis


Abstract

In this review, we conduct an exploratory study to assess Egypt Science and Technology System by the utilization of the Delphi survey combined with “Electronic Town Meeting” protocol following a preliminary evaluation of research and innovation performance at the national level. The application of this protocol was directed toward a realization of national science and technology SWOT analysis. Within this analytical framework, we examined different components of Egypt Science and Technology System in addition to competencies, bottlenecks and opportunities with the aim of providing a concrete assessment view and draw useful directions that could be rapidly utilized in different settings. We recommend using this combined protocol in the different strategic planning settings and actions.
