The mobilisation of the necessary resources for effective research, innovation and knowledge transfer proves difficult for any one institution in an increasingly difficult environment; collaboration between institutions with common interests and problems is encouraged. CARIMA comes in as that catalyst to encourage and build networks for the exchange of ideas and best practices in research, innovation management and knowledge transfer in the Central Africa region.

 

Vision

As part of the Global Research Management Network, CARIMA will be the premier organization in the Central Africa region for promoting best practices in the management, administration, and support of research and innovation, to stimulate the translation of research results into policies, practices, and products that will facilitate sustainable socio-economic development.
