iSharp Managing Director for the Middle East, Ashraf Hazin, announced on Tuesday the establishment of Egypt’s first ‘smart’ educational city in Giza governorate.

According to Hazin, the investment cost is exceeding EGP 5 billion, as reported by Masrawy.

iSharp Communications, which was founded in 2009 with offices in UAE, KSA and Egypt, is part of the iSharp World group. It aims at modernizing infrastructure networks.

According to Hazin, the city will be built on an area of 25 feddans in Giza, and it is currently acquiring the government licenses for the project for which Head of Investment Council Mohsen Adel is attempting to speed up.

The city’s plan includes four educational schools: British, French, American, German and an Olympian sports school as well as a world-class science museum to showcase the various sciences using virtual reality technology.

Hazin stressed that the buildings will also be environmentally-friendly for the first time in Egypt with modern designs that are completely technologically controlled.

There will also be the development of an educational development centre for digital innovation supporting technology developers, which was initially to be established in India prior to the company’s decision to establish it in Egypt in order to provide new quality of education for the Egyptians.

Education in the city will revolve around three spheres: education through practice, education through entertainment and education by audio, visual effects and 3D techniques.

“Our vision is to transform the society into a smarter, securer, and easier place to live in and our mission is to simplify our customer’s lives through the effective use of innovative technologies,” Hazin stated.

Generally, a smart city is a residential municipality which seeks to increase operational efficiency, improve the quality of governmental services, citizen welfare and information sharing with population through communication technologies and information.

In 2018, smart cities around the world include New York (USA) Tokyo (Japan), Helsinki (Finland), Barcelona (Spain), Amsterdam (Netherlands) and Singapore.

According to UNICA, ‘Smart Academic Cities’ can only be considered successful once all six dimensions of a ‘Smart City’ are applied, this includes: Smart People, Smart Economy, Smart Governance, Smart Mobility, Smart Environments, and Smart Living.

In order for a smart city to function efficiently, all different actors need to cooperate together. In the case of a ‘smart’ educational city, this would require the collaboration of not only academics and researches but also policymakers, businesses, students, urban development planners and the government.

Have to agree with your last comment Newc. All this advertising could it be "Fake News"? If correct you can see whats happening the largest concentrate of people are getting benefits at the expense of all others. A little like the North and South of the UK, London gets all the benefits while the North are completely forgotten.

If one drives from Cairo to Suez one can view huge nearly all empty new enclosed 'Villages full of luxury
Villa's, now this was pre Mubarak he sold the land off to all the mafia, with the contract No build within 3 years
the Gov gents it all back.
Now we are talking at least 20 to 30 big builds, mostly derelict It's all a bank building scam, that's what
business people do.
It was invented in this country it's now called ardash scam ? but when I worked for Tarmac's accounts it was called
'bleeding them dry..... 8)
Ps: The same scam was being ran where I once lived, on top of the Mokkatam Hills over Cairo.

They have had Smart City there for a while. Its got schools for rich idiot children - western teachers because the rich Cairenes hate Egyptian teachers and derive status from having western teachers - many of them with criminal and performance problems in their home country - and the Hawwass World Institute - taxpayer funded - that I posted about a month or so ago is there along with other garbage cans. Microsoft used to be there until it got sick in its stomach about 4 years ago and ran out.

At certain points all you can do is laugh.

There is not a single high tech firm in the world that has a single dollar invested in Egypt. How is that smart?

As most know a bit of marketing, relaunching of something 5 years old and which failed, will deceive most if you give it a sexy title. Appearance is everything.

Egypt is IT backwards but more importantly it has the worst or second worst education system in the world - UN assessment - and it has got a lot worse in the last 50 years under the current 'management'. Most countries go forwards - Egypt goes backwards and in a dramatic way and learns nothing from its mistakes - except the Asperger 'virtues' of repetition.

When Mubarak was President, just prior to his removal he introduced a scheme for certain teachers in every Secondary School to undergo training in computer studies. When they had studied and passed their exams they were then supposed to pass on their knowledge to the other teachers. CISCO oversaw the training and examined teachers, Mubarak left and the scheme was dropped.
