This was revealed by UNDP Deputy Resident Representative, Challa Getachew at a meeting with the MUBAS Vice Chancellor, Associate Professor Nancy Chitera and Dean of Faculty of Engineering, Dr. Gregory Gamula on Wednesday, 27 April, 2022.

The meeting was aimed discussing the funding details for the upgrading of the existing Innovation Hub and Design Studio into a world class Innovation Laboratory by November 2022.

Applauding to this gesture, Associate Professor Chitera said this has come at a right time when MUBAS is inculcating innovation and entrepreneurship in all of its programmes.

Chitera pointed out that universities have an obligation to provide relevant and modern solution to challenges faced by the society. The state of the art lab will put MUBAS at this strategic position.

The Innovation Laboratory will become a centre for Ideation Space, Design Studio, Business Nursery and Technology Transfer. The MUBAS - UNDP partnership is underpinned in MUBAS Strategic Pillar of “Innovation and Entrepreneurship”.
