Science, technology and innovation (STI) are expected to play a pivotal role in Kenya’s Vision 2030 development blue print. Mount Kenya University is therefore committed to play its part in complementing government efforts in socio-economic transformation of our society. Indeed, the University reckons that a knowledge-driven economy and not a resource-based one will be key in this endevour, largely informed by research and innovation. The University therefore continues to invest in research and innovation activities, and in the last fiscal year, we allocated Ksh. 50 million towards the same. The funds were invested towards equipping the Research Centre, establishing and running the Enterprise Academy, the first-ever in the region for youth empowerment geared towards job and wealth creation. The funds were also used for organizing a National Water Summit in Turkana county, funding research and innovation projects, supporting dissemination activities through facilitating faculty to publish in peer-refereed journals and to participate in both local and international conferences. The University has further organized capacity building workshops and community outreach activities. The University will continue supporting STI activities as an important catalyst towards socioeconomic transformation of our society.
