Science Council 2017 CPD Award


On 21 September, winners of the Science Council’s CPD Awards were invited to a ceremony in London to celebrate their achievements.

The annual CPD Awards is designed to celebrate the continuing professional development (CPD) efforts and achievements of registrants from across the registers: Registered Science Technician (RSciTech), Registered Scientist (RSci), Chartered Scientist (CSci) and Chartered Science Teacher (CSciTeach). Now in its third year, the awards offer them recognition for their broad and diverse range of professional activities.

It’s honor to be among the winners and commended members of the professional institutes that received the awards from the Science Council. I would like to thank the Institute of Science and Technology (IST UK) for all the support and nomination and it means a lot in terms of professional career to be recognized by the Science Council as Chartered Scientist and also commended for my CPD in 2017. Below is my certificate received on my behalf by staff member of IST UK and Professor David Croisdale-Appleby, Science Council Chair (left) as I wasn’t able to attend the ceremony due to my travel with the UN.

This Day in History…25th Jan – 11 February 2011

After 18 days of tumultuous protests and stubborn refusals to leave a position he’s held for 30 years, Mubarak gave up power today, handing his authority to supreme council of armed forces.

It is not really a technical moment; it is all about emotions, success, dignity, and courage of Egyptian people who made this great moment.

Before anything, we must stand for the soul of MARTYRS who carried out this revolution.

In the roles of technology in this great moment, I will just quote few words from President Barak Obama in his speech to Egyptian People “Their creativity, talent and technology to call for a government that represented their hopes and not their fears.”

This is a historical moment that no words can express the feelings.

Egypt Reborn…Long live Egyptian people

Glory to the martyrs!
