Nanoelectronics Integrated Systems Center (NISC)
The model of NISC follows the approach of focusing on the design and testing phases of electronic product development while outsourcing the manufacturing phase. The major (Obstacle) bottleneck for these two phases is the existence of a critical mass of highly skilled and trained human resources. Therefore, a major part of the NISC mission is to develop the required human resources at the highest level of preparation and excellence and in the appropriate numbers. Besides preparing human resources skilled in the general electronics area, it is part of the mission of NISC to develop niche areas of excellence that will distinct Egypt and give the country a competitive edge and move the industry up the value chain. Finally, the center’s mission includes helping build the reputation of Egypt in the electronics area through seminal publications, patents, and startups.
