A big hallo from Joseph from Research Beeline in Nairobi.. We support researchers and Universities across Africa to easily identify research funding opportunities as per their needs through our digital platforms.

Education is pivotal to attaining the SDGs however universities are dependent upon funding - there is a real question here, how do Universities ensure that the research they do is having positive effect on certain SDGs while causing deleterious effect on others?Ie Bioeconomy ie waste for bioplastic, which as yet may cause more problems for soil and water

For Prof Lawrence - What is the kind of preparedness (policies, investment, culture) that University of Igbinedion had in place to be able to successfully participate in this kind of a partnership?

IP is normally handled within collaborative agreements between the university and the partner(s)

Great observation across continents on the need for private funding - again ties in to my original question on cross compliance with all SDGs, it is a huge issue with private funding looking at profit driven research. Should there be a global look at all research, which respects all of the SDGs in all aspects of research rather than a siloed response to certain SDGs ?

George Willaim Otim-Nape
These have been great presentations. There is a lot of initiatives going on in different parts of the Globe - South America, Europe and Africa. Theses presents huge opportunities to learn from each other to accelerate ST&I contribution to achievements of SDGs. Some kind of institutional or organizational arrangement to make this happen is needed. A deliberate action by the Global community will be necessary.

Good comment on the need for Universities to take control of policy related to their own research on their own campuses and how that research ties into the SDGs ( I believe it should be bench marked on all of the SDGs to avoid silos and potential to align with singular SDGs whilst causing damage for other SDGs)Thank you for wonderful input.
