Activities & News
My R4i experience was highly informative, providing quality content that if sustained, will revolutionise our approach as Nigerian academics and instill new value in impacting our young graduates with requisite knowledge and skills to compete practically and innovatively within and outside Nigeria.
I am most grateful to TETFund and Innov8 Hub for providing this incredible opportunity, which would be a transformative force upon return to my institution. After my R4i experience, I eagerly anticipate witnessing what the future holds for younger Nigerians, confident that with government support and technology, Nigerian youths can showcase to the world that they have the potential to achieve greatness.
Thanks to R4i, one striking perspective that instigated a paradigm shift within me was the emphasis on research with commercial intent. The organizers targeted most sessions at capacity-building on ways to conduct and supervise research that can stimulate the creation of business ventures.
