A cooperation protocol was signed last year between ministry of Communication and Information Technology, Information Technology Industry Development Agency and the Ministry of Higher Education to facilitate a pilot project on the Enar.
This cooperation protocol was to allow distribution of ten thousand devices that will be first produced, to university students across Egypt to give feedback on the effectiveness of the device.
The Minister of Communications and Information Technology emphasized the importance of the project in meeting the needs of all sectors, including the education sector and the many entities that may be interested in the Egyptian tablet.
