The Urban Training and Studies Institute- UTI was established via cooperation between the Housing and Building National Research Centre - HBRC in Cairo and the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies- IHS in Rotterdam within the framework of the development cooperation between the Governments of the Netherlands and Egypt.

UTI was officially founded as a result of a second phase of the Egyptian-Dutch cooperation which started in December 1997. Through this cooperation technical and managerial assistance were provided by the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS) from Rotterdam and the Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC).

The assistance provided focused first on capacity and institution building and human resources development which were required for UTI establishment.
