Annual Science and Development Platform


The Office of the Provost of the College of Basic and Applied Sciences (CBAS) is pleased to announce the introduction of the CBAS annual Science and Development Platform (CBAS-SDP). The CBAS SDP is intended to provide:

  • Opportunity for faculty of the College to show-case and publish their research findings;
  • A forum for faculty to interact with industry and initiate collaborative ventures where industry is given space to table their questions for CBAS faculty to find solutions;
  • Space and time for faculty from different backgrounds and disciplines to exchange ideas and forge inter-, multi-, and trans-disciplinary teams to work on joint research problems;
  • Opportunity for the College to review its research agenda in order to focus research fund-raising and funding allocation on priority issues.

This announcement is also a call for submission of abstracts for the first (2015/2016) Science and Development Platform (CBAS-SDP).
