These endeavors aim to generate employment, foster wealth creation, and reduce the nation’s import expenses.

Mr. Halilu outlined the agency’s adoption of the 3Cs principles—Creation, Collaboration, and Commercialization—partnering with both public and private sectors to ensure that NASENI not only conducts research but also delivers products to end-users.

We have identified our partners and also leveraged on existing technology to come up with products that are not only competitive but also market driven. This is to ensure sustainability of the products. We tell the investors to work with us and support industrialization efforts of the country. The key thing we do differently is to take our R&D results (products) to the market.”, he explained.
