Nobel Laureate Ahmed Zewail Inaugurates Zewail Foundation Public Lecture Series at AUC

The American University in Cairo (AUC) hosted the inaugural lecture of the Zewail Foundation Public Lecture Series in Science and Culture, delivered by Nobel laureate and AUC trustee Ahmed Zewail. Zewail's lecture, titled "Egypt is the Hope," discussed Egypt's future in the post-revolutionary period and announced the inauguration of a new project, Zewail City for Science and Technology. Addressing a packed Ewart Hall, Zewail said, "The January 25 revolution was a model revolution as it represented the unity of a whole nation with all segments of the society." He added that he never imagined how much corruption existed in Egypt until the revolution brought it to light. He continued his remarks, discussing opportunities for economic development in Egypt including the expansion of the country's agriculture and tourism industries, and a focused effort to improve education. "There will never be a revival without focusing on education," he noted. "Thanks to the revolution and a government that cares about education and scientific research, we were able to establish the Zewail City for Science and Technology," said Zewail. "The city will include an international university and a technology garden."
