President of the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology (ASRT) Gina el Feky asserted key contributions of the academy in boosting the role of Egyptian museums and spreading the culture of science and technology through carrying out several joint projects and initiatives marking the International Museum Day, which is celebrated on May 18th each year.

She added that the national network of museums and science centers, which aims to document, analyse and preserve Egypt's diversified scientific heritage, represents top domains of cooperation between the ASRT and the museums.

The ASRT has organized, in cooperation with Egyptian museums, educational programs and events meant to raise scientific awareness among different categories of the society, specially the youth.

Established by the International Council of Museums (ICOM) in 1977, the International Museum Day is celebrated annually on May 18th and serves as a global platform to promote the role of museums in cultural exchange and development.

This year’s theme, “Museums for Education and Research,” aims to underscore the significance of museums as dynamic educational institutions fostering learning, discovery, and cultural understanding.
