ICTs for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Development in Egypt

Competitiveness on the part of Egyptian enterprises is regarded as one of the key factors in the country's economic development. Egypt has a large number of small, micro and medium enterprises (SMMEs) that are unable to compete in a global context where knowledge counts more than physical capital or natural resources.

This grant will allow the Egyptian Ministry of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) to undertake a series of actions to help SMMEs appropriate ICTs and to use them wisely in ways that meet their needs. From this experience, researchers will draw the best strategies and approaches to learning, as well as tools for evaluating the appropriation of ICTs by SMMEs.

The ultimate goal is to allow MPMEs to become more competitive and effective on the national and international scene, and to generate more employment.
