Egerton University announces its Biennial International Conference to be held on the 19th, 20th and 21st March 2024. This will be the 15th edition of the International Conference organized by the University and brings together people from academia, research institutions and other industry experts in various fields to a common forum. The Conference is organized and hosted by the Directorate of Research and Extension and has attracted up to 500 participants per edition in the past.

The aim of the conference is to provide a platform for participants to share their experiences and research results, deliberate and exchange innovative cutting-edge development ideas, concepts and actions.  This will include keynote speakers, paper presentations, interactive panel discussions, question and answer sessions and exhibitions. 

This will be a blended (virtual and face-to-face sessions) conference. The theme of the conference is Research for Innovative Solutions in the 21st Century. In highly volatile and uncertain times, organizations need to be resilient to cope effectively with unexpected events, recover from crises and even foster future success, through conducting research and developing creative approaches to address the complex and evolving issues that the society faces. Underlying this theme is the acknowledgment that Science, Technology and Innovation are major drivers and enablers of social, environmental, health and economic transformation. The application of knowledge and innovation is necessary to attain sustainable economic growth and competitiveness.
