334-2014 Project title: Empowerment for research capacity in knowledge and information production and sharing for socio- economic development in Uganda

Research Phase

Research Phase: 

To exploit Uganda’s exceptionally rich natural resources requires well developed information and knowledge management support.

Therefore, Uganda needs to develop human capacity in knowledge production and sharing capable of contributing to poverty reduction and equitable and sustainable socio-economic development through access to and use of relevant information.

The proposed project seeks to strengthen the research capacity in Library and information science (LIS) education to support knowledge and information production and sharing for sustainable socio-economic transformation and development in Uganda. This project will train 5 PhDs locally and will also develop one PhD curriculum and review one PhD programme.
