The University of Rwanda (UR) is pleased to announce the UR Scientific Conference Week entitled: ‘Rebranding Research for Sustainable Development.’
The UR was established in 2013 by the Government of Rwanda from the merger of the nation’s seven (7) public Higher Learning Institutions ‘to deliver quality education and develop innovative teaching and research meant to address the problems of the population, the students, the nation, the region and the world.’ This conference provides an opportunity for scholars and stakeholders to reconsider the role of research in socio-economic transformation. In addressing the context of national and global developmental goals especially the SDGs, the UR aims to become both local in context and at the same time globally relevant.
This conference is expected to bring together over 1000 participants from around the world. Over 300 papers is expected to be presented.
