Research Grant Facilitation Workshop for Faculty

The ORGS held on Tuesday, January 16, its first event of the year 2018, the Research Grant Facilitation Workshop for faculty.

Response to the workshop was very positive and registration was over-subscribed.  In total, 30 members of the University’s faculty, including senior faculty attended the session. The workshop aimed at raising awareness about AKU’s policies and procedures for approval and monitoring of research grant proposals and development of research budgets. More significantly the workshop also helped to generate a dialogue about the next steps in ensuring that grant approval and monitoring process was facilitative in nature.

The workshop was a great success as was evident from the positive response from its attendees and from the workshop evaluation shown below:
