Vice President of Egypt-Japan University of Science and Technology (E-JUST) Satoshi Goto announced that the Centre of Innovative Technology (CINTECH) was appraising inventions proposed by undergraduate students.
The students had received project funding from the university.
An industrial prototype will be designed based on inventions that won the Young Inventor Competition that was organised by the university last December.
Four student groups won the competition, Goto said, noting that each group presented the idea of an invention that would ultimately lead to setting up a small company for its manufacture.
Winners will receive funding for their prototypes in cooperation with the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology (ASRT).
Smart artificial limbs and applications to improve health care and dentistry were among the winning projects, Goto said.
