We propose an exchange programme to promote the scientific collaboration in particle physics and related technologies between a network of Egyptian Universities and EU member states Academic Institutions which have already originated innovative transfer of knowledge towards Egypt. The main objectives of the joint exchange programme are:
• the reinforcement of the Europe-Egypt scientific collaboration. In particular in past years both France and Italy have funded initiatives in the field of particle physics and related technologies to boost Egyptian interest and personnel training. The present proposition intends to further improve the collaboration by especially allowing long term visits of young and senior Egyptian scientists to perform advanced research on fundamental particle physics in the framework of worldwide large collaborations. Moreover the programme would offer the possibility to second EU researchers to Egypt to originate advanced research activities, advice on the development of the local infrastructures and monitor the success of the transfer of knowledge;
• the establishment of a important scientific collaboration between Italy and France on advanced physics concepts and technologies. Although some researchers of the EU Academic Institutions involved in the proposal have already collaborated through the CERN experimental physics program, the possibility of building up an independent common research program would boost enormously the joint research capability. It should be mentioned that the researches involved in these EU institutions can offer an impressive expertise to the activities relevant for this proposal. Their collaboration could therefore have an important European long term impact on the progress of the physics concept and technologies hereby discussed.
