On 5th October, 2021, a team from Elgon Kenya Limited led by the Managing Director, Dr. Bimal Kantaria held a meeting with the Vice-Chancellor, University of Nairobi, Prof. Stephen Kiama to discuss collaboration in developing a research and innovation center at the Faculty of Agriculture, Upper Kabete Campus. The research and innovation center will provide practical skills for the students and thereby bridge the “know-do’ gap. This will ensure that students leaving the University are well equipped with current industry requirements and practices. The center will also train farmers in modern farming techniques. The collaboration was facilitated by the IPMO together with researchers from the Faculty of Agriculture.
