“EgSA welcomes the delegates from thirteen African countries represented in this training session; the group of specialists presented at the training had the opportunity to take a tour of EgSA facilities, access laboratories and see the progress of establishing the headquarters of the African space agency. This year, we provided training in both English and French, thanks to the EAPD support. The seventeen specialists had the opportunity to exploit their capabilities and skills with Egyptian specialists, allowing more collaborative future opportunities”, commented Professor Mohamed Sedky, the CEO of EgSA.
