Agricultural Technology and Innovation Centre

The University of Nairobi and Elgon Kenya Ltd have entered into a collaborative agreement with the goal of establishing an Agricultural Technology and Innovation Centre (ATIC) at Upper Kabete Campus.

This collaborative venture was born out of the need to foster the culture of innovation, promote resource mobilization for development and commercialization of market-demanded products and services, need to train and mentor innovators/entrepreneurs in order to increase chances of commercial success and to accelerate uptake of technology along the agricultural value chains.


It will allow close collaboration with Industry, private sector, County Governments and Central Government, thereby scaling up  agricultural activities, training, internships and research at the Faculties of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine, and facilitating income generating activities within the centre.
