The Makerere University Research and Innovations Fund (Mak-RIF) is a special funding stream to support generation and translation of high impact research and innovations to drive Uganda’s development Agenda. This unique initiative is supported by the Government of Uganda.
1. Developing and funding a robust research agenda based on National development priorities identified from academia, government, implementing partners
2. Supporting the dissemination of high quality research and innovations in a way that impacts on development policies and programmes
3. Supporting the growth of research leadership capacity in the university
Since FY 2019/20, the fund has supported 588 multidisciplinary research and innovation projects across
the various colleges. The College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHUSS) has obtained 61 projects across the two financial years. It is upon this background that the Mak-RlF office in collaboration with CHUSS is organizing an Open Day to showcase some of the outputs of the different research and innovation projects in line with objective 2 of the Fund. The College will also showcase research outputs from non-RIF supported projects.
Mak-RIF in collaboration with CHUSS invite you all to participate in the event scheduled to take place on Thursday, 29th April 2021 from 8:00am-1:00pm in the Arts Quadrangle. The event will be presided over by the Vice Chancellor of Makerere University, Prof. Barnabas Nawangwe. It will be graced by representatives from Mak-RIF led by Prof. William Bazeyo, Chair of the Makerere University Grant Management Committee and stakeholders in the various research projects.
