In line with the Division’s vision to be ” A University of Global Excellence in Research and Innovation for Development” which is anchored on that of the University, I envision Research,Production and Extension (RPE) as a division with state of the art facilities, with seasoned and motivated researchers, Research and Innovation Managers , and an operating industrial park and business incubation center in relevant thematic areas . These will be incorporated in the Strategic Plan 2018-2022 development. These strategies when implemented, will contribute to making JKUAT a University of Global Excellence in Training,Research and Innovation for Development.
