Lagos State University (LASU), on Thursday said the institution is making frantic effort to access N100 million institutional research grants from industries and international foundations.
The Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun disclosed this on the sideline of a two-day National Workshop on Research Grant Writing and Administration, held at the institution’s premises in Lagos.
The workshop was organized in collaboration with the National University Commission (NUC), Nigeria Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (NIALS), Open Africa Innovation Research (Open Air) and LASU. Fagbohun said that the university was able to access research grant of N50 million last year and is presently looking at accessing institutional grants of about N100 million.
“In the last one year, we have been able to access research grants of between N50 million and N70 million. I am talking about grants ranging between N1.5 million and N2 million.
“Right now, we are looking at accessing institutional grant of N100 million that will bring out a research capable of giving solutions to so many problems,’’ he added.
Fagbohun said the amount accessed previously was possible because LASU staff had been active in the last two years, in terms of accessing grants.
