The University of Namibia (UNAM)’s annual Research and Innovation Day is a veritable platform which has over the years provided a learning and knowledge sharing opportunity for both upcoming and seasoned researchers and academics of the university. Through presentations of scientific research output by seasoned researchers, the upcoming researchers gained first-hand knowledge on how certain critical research and publications processes are achieved. Furthermore, the platform also showcases the rich and diverse research potentials and capabilities of UNAM. The 2018 Research and Innovation Day will be celebrated under the theme: Promoting strategic innovative research and development for Namibia industrialisation. This year’s Research and Innovation
Day will focus on exhibition of physical research and innovative products developed by UNAM’s researchers and academics for public view. The event will therefore, assemble physical research and innovative products from all UNAM campuses and regional centres at the Katima Mulilo Campus where members of the industries and the general public will be invited to view and partner with the university in interested areas. Through this, all UNAM campuses and centres are called upon to send their product titles and a brief description of the products to the Local Organising Secretariat at Furthermore,
postal presentations of innovative researches in progress are also invited for exhibition. All campuses and centres sending innovative products to Katima Mulilo Campus for the Research and Innovation Day are to arrange for the cost of transportation. Additionally, one or two representatives of the campus/centre should accompany the product(s) in order to engage and take the public through the product(s) exhibited.
