The BUE is aiming to become a leading research University in Egypt and the MENA region.
Each Department 's research strategy has to be seen in the context of the whole Faculty's
and University's research policies. Of particular strategic importance, is the role that
effective research policies and practices play in developing strong academic and quality reputations not only in research itself but also in the teaching practices and faculty life of respected universities. Thus, important though they are, effective research policies involve more than just the production of measurable or quantitative research outputs such as conference papers, learned journal articles, monographs, research reports and so on. The individual Departments and Faculty as a whole have to develop and improve the capability to produce effective research proposals in order to attract a steady stream of external funding to support its research aims and activities. BUE research strategy needs to focus on an inter-disciplinary scholarly composition so as to encourage recombination and cross-validation of multi-concepts. There also has to be a programme of regular and effective development of research capacity among academic staff and students and dissemination of research findings, publications and good practice within the faculty, to university and to peer institutions, to policy makers, to potential sponsors and to the wider public.
