BUAN meet with Ministry of Communication, Knowledge and Technology consultants.
On 21st March 2023 BUAN management consisting of Acting Deputy Vice Chancellor, Academic Affairs and Research, accompanied by Deans of faculties met with consultants from the Ministry of Communication, Knowledge and Technology. The purpose of the meeting was to find ways in which the Government of Botswana can merge, Botswana Institute for Technology Research and Innovation (BITRI) and Botswana Digital & Innovation Hub (BIDH). The Government of Botswana has embarked on rationalisation of its State Owed Enterprises (SOEs) to make them more efficient in delivering public mandate. BUAN will assist the Ministry to craft modalities for a seamless merge. Other Research, Science and Innovation issues were also discussed that will help the consultants to make inform decision before giving the ministry their recommendations.
