Nigerian research institute to transfer technologies to SMEs

The Nigerian Federal Institute of Industrial Research in Lagos State wants to transfer its technologies to small agricultural businesses in the country with the aim of commercialising them.

The director-general of the institute, Gloria Elemo, said that the institute has developed over 350 technologies, but has faced a challenge in transferring them to enterprises.

“Commercialisation is not easy. It requires a lot of money”, she told the Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture in Lagos on 17 August.
