Abuja Liaison Office


INTRODUCTION

In a quest to broaden its numerous activities, FIIRO management took a giant step of establishing a Liaison Office in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja in the year 2001 to co-ordinate the activities of the Institute in Abuja. The major function of the Abuja Liaison office is to harness and deploy available resources to accelerate the overall achievement of the institute’s goals and objective.  Through this office, the activities relating to all departments of the Institute within the headquarters (Lagos), have been well-coordinated in Abuja over the years.

Furthermore the office develops appropriate synergy by interfacing between the Institute, MDAs and relevant stakeholders for general application of Science, Technology and Innovation for the promotion of effective utilization of Research and Development products.
