Research is the backbone to development, providing solutions to societal problems through the transfer of knowledge and technologies, interactions and reflections. In the process, research meets the demand for health, food and transportation fuels, among other priorities, while reducing the impact on the environment, thereby improving livelihoods.
The University of Nairobi is a research intensive university with a reputation for excellence and a strong and vibrant research culture, demonstrated by the continual growth of our research capacity and research portfolio.
As such the University of Nairobi in its strategic direction remains alive to the significance of research and how it impacts development, making conscious and deliberate efforts to achieve the same by tapping into its expertise across all disciplines.
It is therefore our objective to ensure that our research, across all disciplines remains relevant by positively impacting the community and the region towards the achievement of National development.
