    Dear Readers, Welcome to a new issue of our DAAD Cairo Newsletter! Despite the fact that we are still going through somewhat turbulent times in Egypt, we are happy to share some really good news with you! Only a couple of days ago, 61 new promising young researchers received their GERLS-scholarship certificates from the hands of the Minister of Higher Education, the Minister of Scientific Research and the German Ambassador. This means that more than 220 Egyptian GERLS scholars will conduct their re-search at German universities the even better news is that by October we are expecting the first large GERLS cohort of approx. 100 scholars to come back to Egypt, freshly awarded with a PhD! We wish them good luck and will continue to assist them to be change agents for the development of the country. Positive news is also to be announced in another very pres-tigious programme; this year the incredible number of 10 full scholarships for Graduates of German Schools in Egypt was awarded to the brightest youngsters. The fantastic result could only be achieved because the DAAD has joined forces with the Sawiris Foundation which very generously sup-ports us in this programme because it believes just like us in investing in Egypts talents. There is one more set of figures I would like to share with you; never before has the bilateral scientific collaboration been our two countries been broader. 2012 saw a doubling in DAAD funding for Egypt more than 2,000 students, graduates, researchers and administrators were supported on short-term and long-term missions both ways. 1,400 of them being Egyptians sent to Germany and approx. 600 Germans to come to Egypt. Let us build on these encouraging figures! I wish you an enjoyable read! Dr Michael Harms, Director, DAAD Office Cairo
