Realignment of CRIN Research Focus

Realignment of CRIN Research Focus

The Scientists in the Institute are taking turns to hold research programme meetings in order to fine tune research themes and tasks thereby realigning the direction of year 2023 research activities. This is in keeping with the charge of the Executive Director, Dr. Patrick Adebola, for a departure from individual research focus to Institutional theme that cuts across all research disciplines. The research programmes were equally charged to generate proposals for external funding to augment the lean research funding from the Federal Government coffers. This was reiterated by the Director (Research Operations), Dr. S.O. Agbeniyi, during the meeting with the new Programme Leaders (PLs) necessitating a paradigm shift in the research approach. The PLs are: Dr. S.B. Orisajo (Cocoa), Dr. C.O. Jayeola (Value Addition Research), Dr. M.O. Okeniyi (Tea), Dr. K.A. Oluyole (Coffee), Dr. K.B. Adejobi (Kola), Dr. O.O. Adeigbe (Cashew), and Dr. S.A. Adeosun (Farming Systems Research). The programmes have held intensive research-driven meetings and constituted grant winning teams.
