Mak-RIF Round 2 Call for Proposals Researcher Sensitization Online Meeting, 27th March 2020, 11:00am to 12:00 Noon, Makerere University Facebook Page

The Government of the Republic of Uganda has committed a special Research and Innovation Fund (RIF) to Makerere University to the tune of 30 Billion Uganda Shillings per year to support the implementation of high impact Research and Innovations that contribute substantially to accelerating national development. In line with this, Makerere University anticipates to receive more funding in the next financial year (2020/2021).

It is in this regard that Makerere University's Grants Management Committee (GMC) launched the call for proposals for the RIF Round 2, Track 1: New Research & Innovation Agenda-based Grants. The Round 2, Track 1 Grants will specifically target research and innovation ideas that align with priority thematic issues in the RIF’s instructive Research Agenda that arose from the Grants Management Committee’s consultation of stakeholders from all key sectors in Uganda’s economy.

See details about the Stakeholder Consultations shared on https://rif.mak.ac.ug/mak-rif-holds-stakeholders-consultative-workshop-with-private-sector-development-partners/  and  https://rif.mak.ac.ug/makerere-university-research-and-innovations-fund-rif-holds-a-consultative-workshop-to-inform-the-research-agenda/
