WHAT WE DO

Summer School

The Egyptian Desalination Research Center of Excellence (EDRC) and the Technology and Innovation Commercialization Office (TICO) organize the annual summer school on “Towards Non-conventional Sustainable Water Resources,” which is held in October every year at Marsa-Matruh City. The summer school focus on sustainable water supply and wastewater management in order to achieve sustainable development in Egypt. The Summer School aims to make water supply and wastewater management interesting and put these topics at the forefront of people´s minds. Furthermore, it give a broad understanding of water circulation in society as well as an understanding of the aspects related to water and wastewater treatment. The summer school also provides an open platform for participants from different universities and research institutes to share experiences and exchange ideas for cooperation related to their different fields of water studies.

Conference

In the framework of cooperation between the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology, the Desert Research Center (DRC), and the Egyptian Desalination Research Center of Excellence (EDRC) organizes the annual international scientific conference, which is held in January every year to solve the problems of water shortage, find promising ways to save water, and present non-conventional sources. The conference aims to call attention to these concerns by focusing on innovative approaches to desalinating water and managing wastewater within an economic framework without affecting the environment. Additionally, it will provide a thorough grasp of water circulation in society and the underlying factors in wastewater treatment. The conference offers an open opportunity for participants from different universities and research institutions around the world to share experiences and develop ways to work together on projects related to their diverse fields of water studies.

Training

The Egyptian Desalination Research Center of Excellence (EDRC) regularly hosts training sessions for Egyptian university students in its main laboratories with the goal of preparing graduates for the career path and advancing their expertise in the field of scientific research. The labs have the technology for preparing and characterization nanomaterials. Under the guidance of specialists in the field of scientific research, students receive training.

NEWS & EVENTS

In reflection of the many services and activities provided by the Center of Excellence of the Desert Research Center, two new desalination plants have been accomplished in Shalateen and Halayeb (Ras Hadraba), which are located on the Egyptian-Sudanese border at latitude 22 and provide good life given the lack of water resources in these areas.

Thanks to all the team members who made a lot of effort to carry the hardship of traveling to reach these border places. They were motivated to complete this generous work for our people in this area.  Asking God for success and permanent payment for the further development of our country Egypt                                         

We are present in COP 27

Within the framework of the partnership between the Egyptian Center of Excellence for Water Desalination and the universities of Egypt, valuable projects are extracted for the graduation projects of graduate students. And from here, one of these projects participated in COP 27.

The International Conference on Water Desalination, which is presented by the Center of Excellence of the Desert Research Center, is back after an absence for two years in a row. The conference serves as a global scientific platform where specialists from all Egyptian universities and research institutions as well as those from other nations discuss the most recent methods for sourcing alternative water sources to keep up with sustainable development in line with the 2030 plan.
