About RCIDC Research Centre

RCIDC Research Centre has been operating informally and only became in 2022. The organization is a semi-autonomous entity of the Institute of Advanced Leadership Uganda. It is founded by a team of four Uganda based and eminent Senior Research Associates with proven track record in academia, state and non-state actors.   


Justification for Research Centre Establishment

In Social and economic environment that is constantly evolving and faced with the growing complexity of acquiring knowledge and new technology, research plays an important role in this process. Researchers should show more solidarity and exploit all available resources regarding their respective academic competencies, as well as the various methods of funding.


In the face of a growing digitization of mass information, the clarity between credible research outputs and evidence based information from those of mass media outlets is hazy. It is this existing gap that the RCIDC Research Centre aims to fulfill.


To maintain its remarkable momentum, our research center shall not only continue to advance in each of the axes where it has made its mark, but also promote collaboration between these axes and the dissemination of findings that have made the reputation of its researchers. This plan describes, in detail, the strategic issues that will enable us to reach our goals while increasing the RCIDC Research Center’s visibility on a national and international level through sharing research outputs and innovation.
