NSE launches SMART innovation hub for research commercialisation

The Nigerian Society of Engineers has unveiled its Smart Innovation Hub to foster productivity, networking and commercialisation of research works by members and stakeholders.

Speaking at the event on Wednesday in Abuja, the President, NSE, Tasiu Gidari-Wudil, said that the hub was conceived in 2016 (tel:2016), to see how to empower the Nigerian engineer on the expectations of the country.

According to him, the innovation hub is where the ideas will come, be developed and commercialized, adding that most of the research work in our universities is not commercialised.

He added that members were finding it difficult to have offices due to lack of office space.

Gidari-Wudil further stated that because it was virtual, the offices could be as many as one million offices and all members could have their own office spaces.

He said that it was a very good place for business because all security measures would be put in place to ensure that no one is defrauded.
