Egypt ranks 82 in the Global Knowledge Index 2019
Egypt is ranked 82nd in the Global Knowledge Index (GKI) 2019, rising 17 spots from 99 in last year’s edition, making it the most-improved country on the index this year. Our research, development, and innovation ranking rose 25 places, while our higher education performance jumped 10 spots. The GKI is a joint initiative between the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation (MBRF) that reaks down the concept of knowledge into constituent components such as basic education, research, and the overall environment. Switzerland came in the top spot globally, while the UAE outperformed in the MENA region.
