The ESLSCA Research Center has been established by ESLSCA University in September 2019. Its vision is to become a leading multidisciplinary research entity in Egypt and in the Middle East and North African (MENA) region.
We believe that research has to be fully integrated into our whole curriculum for two main reasons: first, because this is part of the set of skills needed on the labour markets; second, because it creates a capacity-building within the university.
We believe the research center is an essential consulting service in the following areas: questionnaires and market studies; feasibility studies and business planning; macroeconomic research; marketing and economic sector analyses; training on research skill development.
We believe that the research center’s support in the production of a multidisciplinary research and in the dissemination of this research is crucial for the university.
The Research Center will soon launch a visiting researcher program that aims to hosting visiting scholars appointed into the Research Center for a fixed period to advance a collaborative research activity.
Visiting scholars range from senior faculty to doctoral students, who are at the start of their scholarly careers. They already have a funding source and an affiliation. They are not involved in teaching programmes.
