The Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Academic Affairs (ag), Prof. Julius Ogeng’o when he attended the IP Commercialization Workshop in Taifa Hall, Main Campus on July 23, 2018.

Speaking during the event, University of Nairobi Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Peter Mbithi urged members of the academia to harness IP assets that could be commercialized.  “In the process of doing your research endeavours, you could be looking for doctorate degrees and forgetting the IP assets, I urge you to increase commercialization of IP assets in the University,“ he said.  He observed that , harnessing of IP assets is the foundation of great universities and as a world class university, the University of Nairobi has no option but to venture in that domain.  “Considerable investment is required and success is mandatory, “he said. He took the opportunity to thank World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and Kenya Industrial Property Institute (KIPI) for supporting the University in its IP Audit journey.
