About Us

The Directorate for Research, Innovation and Development (DRID) was formerly called University Board of Research (UBR) which was established in 1994 as a statutory body of the University under the office of the Vice-Chancellor with the mandate to among others, coordinate and regulate research work, ensure that research fund allocated are used for the purpose it is intended; and make appropriate recommendations to Management accordingly. In order to effectively implement the policy and strategy, the University Senate at its 392nd meeting on the 28th January, 2015 approved the expansion and change of the name of UBR to the Directorate of Research Innovation and Development (DRID). The current structure will provide the much needed enabling environment for research capacity development, patenting of intellectual properties and utilization of research outputs to provide goods and services for national development.
