My R4i Experience: NASIRU SULEIMAN

Receiving a pristine transformative knowledge through the Research for Impact initiative has created a renewed hope and aspiration that all the efforts in teaching and practical engagements in my discipline have not disappeared into forlorn hope. This programme has depicted from the title, limited vicissitude of time done justice in transforming my mindset for an aesthetic stride in commanding the inherent commercial values inbuilt in me, towards promotion of individual and humanity’s socio-economic status.

My R4i Experience: ENGR. NURA HASSAN

Through the R4i initiative, I was able to reorient my faculty of thinking towards research in Nigeria, from research for strictly publications to commercialized research. The facilitators inspired, encouraged, and educated me on how to add value to my research. Consequently, adding value to research means adding value to yourself and the nation. I found myself engulfed in an ocean of opportunities, pushed to be in love with the problems and not the solutions, with an open mind, as problems may have multifaceted approaches toward their solutions.

My journey at the Research for Impact initiative has been a transformative experience, one that has not only broadened my understanding, but has also enriched my perspective on the importance of research in creating tangible impact in our society.

My R4i Experience: GODWIN A. THOMAS

Participating in this immersive program not only deepened my understanding but also ignited a sense of optimism for Nigeria’s future. Despite our diverse backgrounds, participants were bound by a shared commitment to learning and growth. One of the most memorable aspects was the sense of community fostered during the workshop. While I was initially skeptical, I soon found myself transformed into an agent of change, armed with the tools and mindset to tackle Nigeria’s pressing challenges.


The knowledge gained, skills acquired, and relationships forged through the R4i initiative has helped me to understand that my research and development should not end up in publishing papers that get piled up in my shelves without value addition to society, venture creation, sustainability, patenting and generating income. The power to change Nigeria’s future lies within us. I will always cherish the moments spent at Innov8 Hub, the bond shared by all the participants, the facilitators and staff members for their hospitality, technical skills and expertise, love, care, time management skills and photo sessions.
