The Egyptian Research and Training Center (ERTC) was established in 2000 by Dr. Abdel-Hamid Abdel Latif. It is an independent and private entity committed to providing academic scholars, policy makers, business leaders, non-governmental organizations, and market research firms with accurate and reliable information on public attitudes, values and opinions concerning influential aspects of life.
ERTC currently collaborates with partners domestically as well as in the United States, Japan, and a number of countries in Europe and the Middle East. Collaborators represent major international universities and professional research organizations, including the University of Michigan, the University of Maryland, the Gallup World Organization, and the Ford Foundation.
ERTC conducts all elements of the survey research process and relies on a variety of data collection tools including face-to–face interviews, telephone interviews, web surveys, and focus group facilitation. Center staff have professional training and experience in data processing, documentation, analyses, and report production.
