The KAFUCO Research Seminar Series for academic staff has been launched to drive our commitment to the research mandate.
The seminars offer opportunity for both academic staff and postgraduate students to get acquainted with research work conducted by University College, with a view to strengthen our research output and attract research grants.
Hosted weekly by the Directorate of Research, Innovation and Outreach the seminars are geared towards cultivating our faculty into grant-winning researchers by honing their understanding of academic research, grant proposal writing skills as well as multidisciplinary collaborations both amongst themselves and with likeminded institutions and industry.
The output is expected to strengthen our multidisciplinary research center.
Researchers and participants will discuss their academic work, share knowledge on various topical issues and create linkages with scholars in other institutions.
The series was opened by the Principal Prof. Ogodo M.J Nandi.
Prof Nandi, a grant-winning professor of Religion and Philosophy, challenged participants to exploit the opportunity to drive multidisciplinary research at KAFUCO. He said the forum offered opportunity for the University College to upscale quest for a multidisciplinary research center with impactful output.
