5th Annual Conference of the Faculty of Science and Technology, University of Nairobi

Call for Papers and Abstracts

Concept note

The current agenda and programmes for sustainable development is threatened by many challenges which require new thinking in doing things to ensure societal resilience and sustainable development. There are many recent experiences pointing to us that we must make a paradigm shift to sail through challenges like the coronavirus pandemic. We need to appraise how our utilization of science and research outputs may guide in the application of knowledge and identify what can be done much better, and how society can informatively be prepared to sail safely through challenges with a measure of positive progression. Addressing these issues will be the core focus of this conference.
