We are in an exciting month at the University of Nairobi. Research Week 2021 is almost here- November 22 to 26, 2021 is just a few days away, it’s crunch time.
It is exciting as UoN prepares to host six international conferences with the overarching theme ‘Rethinking Research, Innovation & Technology for Sustainable Development.’
The conferences include: 4th Annual Forensic Victimology and Victim Support Conference Kenya 2021, 6th DBA-AMR International Conference, 3rd Annual Development Finance Conference (ADFC) 2021, 4th Annual Conference on Status of African Women, 12th Africa International Business Management Conference (AIBUMA) and Science Outputs for Societal Transformation.
“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.
