President Abdel El-Fattah El-Sisi initiated the concept of the Egyptian Knowledge Bank – EKB – during the Science Day in 2015. It was then officially launched on the 9th of January 2016, the Egyptian Youth Day, to be the biggest digital library in the world. The Education and Scientific Research Council signed agreements with 26 of the world’s largest publishing houses worldwide such as Reuters, National Geographic, Britannica Discovery, Cambridge, and Oxford among others.
Egyptian Knowledge Bank is a huge national project that aims to provide remarkable and diversified sources for knowledge and culture for the students, researchers and the public to enrich themselves with different kinds of scientific and cultural disciplines. Hence, it will enhance the country to a better future.
