The AAUA Centre For Research & Development (CRD) was established to facilitate needs-driven research for achieving sustainable development as well as to serve as a repository for research ideas and inventions. It was also established as an incubator for both public and private sector initiatives. As the Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer (IPTT) desk of the University, it seeks to protect ideas, thoughts, or products of individual or collective intellectual efforts. The CRD also acts as a Clearing House for all applications for international and local grants and also serves as a repository of information on all forms of research outcomes and sponsorships.
Apart from providing leadership in development activities, the CRD is the Consultancy arm of the University and it regularly puts in bids for specific assignments with a view to generating revenue for the University.
We therefore welcome patronage from Government, private individuals and industry, as we are capable of providing solutions to problems in a variety of disciplines, using the University’s rich array of academic staff with professional qualifications in several disciplines ranging from the Liberal Arts, Social and Management Sciences, Education and Law to Science and Technology.
