The course aims to create the institutional capacity at UTech (and within the participating institutions), through training, to mobilize resources that will lead to:

  2. Increase success in securing resources,
  3. Improvement in the ability to respond to declining government subvention support arising from more urgent demands on public Funds.

  1. Resource Mobilization: Diversification of Income Streams for Greater Self-Reliance

  3. Commercialization of Research
  4. Business Development in a University Context
