Welcome to FIIRO

WELCOME TO THE FEDERAL INSTITUTE OF INDUSTRIAL RESEARCH OSHODI

The Federal Institute of Industrial Research, Oshodi (FIIRO) is a parastatal under the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology. FIIRO was the idea of an economic mission sent to Nigeria in 1953 by the World Bank. The mission's observation was that industrial research activities in Nigeria were diffused and uncoordinated with no definite direction. Consequently, a decision was reached to establish the Institute in 1956.

Welcome to FIIRO’s website, the official window of Nigeria’s foremost research institute to the outside world. An adventure into this website affords you the opportunity to acquaint yourself with our vision, mission, antecedents, activities and land mark achievements.

We have the broad mandate of accelerating industrialization in Nigeria and has over the years developed technologies that have promoted the ideals of entrepreneurship development.

We have locally sourced alternative raw materials for our industries, thereby conserving foreign exchange; through adequate food processing techniques we have improved the nutritional content of our food intake and we have locally fabricated machines, equipment and many more.

Impressed as they were with FIIRO’s unequal strides, corporate organizations, governments, NGOs, international organizations, donor agencies, and the academia have actively identified with our R&D pursuits. You can see a list of corporate beneficiaries from FIIRO's research work here.

Also at your disposal via this web are the schedules of our trainings, seminars and workshops. The website also showcases our publications and contributions in making R&D a worthwhile venture.
Please browse our website and use the search feature to link to publications available for download and other information you might need.

Thank you and WELCOME!!!
