Established in February 2010, Access to Knowledge for Development (A2K4D) is a center for research on knowledge, digital technologies and inclusive development in Egypt, the Middle East and Africa. Based at the American University in Cairo’s School of Business, A2K4D has become a knowledge hub for interdisciplinary research on digital platforms, open business models, flexible intellectual property, open innovation, open data, artificial intelligence and inclusion in the digital economy in Egypt and the region.

Our research aims at impacting policy as it offers academic contribution to an area of interest that is novel to Egypt and the region while contributing to global scholarship and actively presenting the voice of developing countries in global conversations.
