Muoki, said that Science, Technology and Innovation is a central concern of the State Department for Planning. “We focus on supporting the Big 4 agenda through collaborations and partnerships with institutions such as MMUST. We are taking note of the levels of development, categories of Science and Technology Parks, benefits to communities, institutions collaborations as well as the recommendations for improvement and support needed from the government,” added Ms. Muoki.

Accompanying the team from State Department for Planning was a group from Konza, a key flagship project of Kenya’s Vision 2030 economic development portfolio that works on Science, Innovation, and Technology in collaboration with Universities.

Other notable personalities present during the meeting were Deputy Registrar Planning, Research and Innovations Prof. Alice Ndiema and the Director, Corporate Communications and Marketing Dr. Lydia Anyonje.
