The Daily News Egypt - - News -

Nevine Gamea, chair­per­son of the Mi­cro, Small and Medium En­ter­prises De­vel­op­ment Agency (MSMEDA), has an­nounced three win­ners in the com­pe­ti­tion held by the agency within the events of the fifth edi­tion of the Cairo In­ter­na­tional Fair for In­no­va­tion which is or­gan­ised by the Academy of Sci­en­tific Re­search.

Ac­cord­ing to Gamea, the win­ner of the best ex­e­cutable grad­u­a­tion project prize was Ka­mal El-dein Ga­mal, rep­re­sent­ing the work team of the Higher Tech­no­log­i­cal In­sti­tute at 10th of Ra­madan City, for man­u­fac­tur­ing the first Egyp­tian boat to op­er­ate with so­lar en­ergy with up to 14 oper­a­tional hours.

The win­ner of the prize for the best start-up was Mo­hamed Mah­moud AlShaqafi, the owner of a de­signed and im­ple­mented e-con­trol board with lo­cal com­po­nents, of high quality that com­petes against im­ported com­po­nents. While the win­ner of the prize for the best idea for a small project was Nasser Ab­del Aziz Mar­zouk, for man­u­fac­tur­ing a group of house­hold elec­tronic ap­pli­ances with en­er­gysav­ing mo­tors.

The prize will be a group of ser­vices pro­vided to win­ners in sev­eral fields, to de­velop or im­ple­ment their pro­jects, such as ad­min­is­tra­tive or tech­ni­cal train­ing, par­tic­i­pat­ing in exhibitions, con­tribut­ing to creat­ing the ini­tial model of the prod­uct, in ad­di­tion to fi­nan­cial ser­vices, in­di­cated Gamea.

Car­ing for and sup­port­ing young peo­ple and in­no­va­tors is the state’s top pri­or­ity, and the agency seeks to con­trib­ute to di­rect­ing this am­bi­tion by pro­vid­ing young peo­ple with all fi­nan­cial and non-fi­nan­cial sup­port to help them turn their pro­jects into en­ter­prises with an eco­nomic fea­si­bil­ity, stressed Gamea.

Gamea had par­tic­i­pated in the fifth edi­tion of the Cairo In­ter­na­tional Fair for In­no­va­tion held by the Academy of Sci­en­tific Re­search in the Per­ma­nent Fair of the MSMEDA. It was held on Thurs­day, in the pres­ence of Khaled Ab­del Ghaf­far, the min­is­ter of higher ed­u­ca­tion, and Tarek Shawky, the min­is­ter of ed­u­ca­tion, as well as Hal­lah El Saeed, the min­is­ter of plan­ning, and Mah­moud Sakr, the head of the Academy of Sci­en­tific Re­search.

The fair aims to present the in­no­va­tions of young Egyp­tian in­ven­tors and hold ed­u­ca­tional sem­i­nars to en­cour­age young peo­ple to in­no­vate, and cre­ate in­ter­est in ac­ti­vat­ing tech­nol­ogy in var­i­ous eco­nomic and so­cial fields.

For his part, Ka­mal Ga­mal El-dein, win­ner of the best ex­e­cutable grad­u­a­tion project prize, said that he dreams of es­tab­lish­ing the first Egyp­tian, Arab Mid­dle Eastern mar­ket to man­u­fac­ture and re­cy­cle so­lar-pow­ered ve­hi­cles which op­er­ate with so­lar en­ergy, to con­trib­ute to mak­ing Egypt a leader in that field.

Ga­mal re­ceived the best en­gi­neer­ing grad­u­a­tion project prize in the Mid­dle East in the Fu­ture Gen­er­a­tion Com­pe­ti­tion held in Dubai in 2018.

The win­ner of the prize for the best start-up, Mo­hamed Mah­moud Al-Shaqafi, said that his real am­bi­tion is bring­ing back Egyp­tian in­dus­try and uti­liz­ing en­gi­neer­ing pro­cesses in pro­duc­ing many in­dus­trial prod­ucts in or­der to be able to de­velop, main­tain, and save them for the busi­ness mar­ket at com­pet­i­tive prices in­stead of im­port­ing and reg­u­larly con­sum­ing them.

Nasser Ab­de­laziz, the win­ner of the prize for the best idea of a small project, said that the prize has given him hope in the pos­si­bil­ity of turn­ing his ideas into pro­duc­tive pro­jects which would ben­e­fit ev­ery­one, and save the coun­try’s elec­tric en­ergy which gets wasted through the use of high­con­sump­tion ap­pli­ances, not­ing that his in­ven­tions will save 50% of elec­tric en­ergy con­sumed in house­hold ap­pli­ances. He also asked Egyp­tians to be proud Egyp­tian man­u­fac­tured prod­ucts.

PRIZE IS TO DE­VELOP OR IM­PLE­MENT THEIR PRO­JECTS, SUCH AS AD­MIN­IS­TRA­TIVE OR TECH­NI­CAL TRAIN­ING, PAR­TIC­I­PAT­ING IN EXHIBITIONS, CON­TRIBUT­ING TO CREAT­ING THE INI­TIAL MODEL OF THE PROD­UCT, IN AD­DI­TION TO FI­NAN­CIAL SER­VICES
