UoN Foundation

Launch of the University of Nairobi Foundation

Kenya continues to position itself as a global leader in research and innovation. In 2021, the Global Innovation Index positioned Kenya as second to South Africa in Sub-Sahara. Further the Covid-19 pandemic has demonstrated the need to nurture new ideas in order to support society’s growth as well as boost capacity to overcome pandemics. As such the UoN Foundation has been established to support Kenyan researchers undertake more ground breaking research and innovation.
