About Makerere University Research and Innovations Fund (Mak-RIF)
Mak-RIF is a funding stream from the Government of the Republic of Uganda to support generation and translation of high impact Research and Innovations to drive Uganda’s development Agenda. This unique initiative is being implemented under the Research and Innovations Fund (RIF) at Makerere University in Kampala Uganda. It arose after engagements between the top University Management and the Government of the Republic of Uganda.
The three objectives of the fund include;
- Develop and fund a robust research agenda based on National development priorities identified from academia, government, implementing partners and industries.
- Support the dissemination of high-quality research and innovations in a way that impacts on development policies and programs
- Support the growth of research leadership capacity in the university
Let us join efforts in supporting researchers and innovators from the education sector as we strive to achieve Uganda’s development and growth.
