Launched in 1964 as a programme of cooperation and partnership from India to address the needs of friendly developing countries including in the human resource development, Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation (ITEC) Programme is an important component of India’s economic relations with Egypt.  Under this programme of cooperation and partnership, India shares its technical expertise with Egypt.  The scheme offers training in over 250 courses in prestigious educational, technical and vocational institutes in India in a variety of fields ranging from information technology to management, vocational training, banking, finance, English language and so on.

Around 300 Egyptian scholars have attended various short-term training courses in the last few years under ITEC and related programmes.  Encouraged by the considerable interest in Egypt in the programme, the Government of India has decided to offer around 100 ITEC slots to Egyptian officials and nationals on a yearly basis. In addition, Egyptian scholars who have travelled to India on the CV Raman Fellowship as well as the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) Scholarships will also attend the event. These scholarships are offered for graduate, post graduate, and doctoral studies in both the sciences and the arts.
