The University of Nairobi takes great pride in providing an enabling, strong and vibrant research culture among staff, students and partners. UoN is recognized for the impact and relevance of research outputs and innovations in SSA region and beyond. The UoN is strategic in providing researchers with a platform to engage peers and stakeholders about their research, and also get the opportunity to network with likeminded stakeholders in relevant respective fields.

To this end, the university will host a series of international conferences at the University of Nairobi Research Week scheduled for November 22 to 26, 2021 themed ‘Rethinking Research, Innovation & Technology for Sustainable Development.’

“This is the fourth year that we are hosting the University of Nairobi Research Week and we will mount five conferences from different faculties and disciplines,” says Prof. Margaret Hutchinson, the Associate Vice-chancellor, Research, Innovation and Enterprise. “The Research Week seeks to foster discussions on research activities and findings, create a platform for presentation of academic papers and showcase innovation illustrations and foster and strengthen partnerships with other players in the research ecosystems across various sectors.”

Calls for abstracts and registration is currently ongoing. Information on the Research Week 2021 can be found on the website. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic’s restrictions, the conferences will be held virtually.
