UIRI is a centre of excellence for the East African Community (EAC) in industrial research. The institution has evolved into a competence and capability centre which champions innovations, translates applied research results into practical applications; that include products and industrial processes, imparts technical skills and deploys technology across Uganda.
Although the recognition of UIRI as a centre of excellence for EAC was decided late 2012, the actual honors were bestowed on November 30, 2013, during the Heads of State Summit at Munyonyo, Uganda. This is a validation of UIRI’s successful metamorphosis from an erstwhile morbid facility to a regional centre of excellence.
Now in its new role as a centre of excellence in the region, the institute has readied itself to share its successful story and proselytize industrialization for the East African region.
To formulate and support strategies, plans and programs that promote and ensure expansion and diversification of tourism, trade, cooperatives, environmentally sustainable industrialization, appropriate technology, conservation and preservation of other tradable national products, to generate wealth for poverty eradication and benefit the country socially and economically.
