Welcome Note

Welcome to the website of the National Commission of Science and Technology (NCST).

In an increasingly knowledge-based global economy, harnessing the potential of science, technology, innovation and research (STIR) and their integration into national development strategies and plans is critical to achieving national goals such as Rwanda Vision 2020 and EDPRS in the most sustainable manner.

Our core mission is to provide strategic advices and recommendations to the Government on all matters relating to policies, legislation and regulation in the fields of science, technology, research and innovation and monitor the implementation of such policies and legislation.

We also serve as science and technology think-tank for the Government in the setting of priorities for national science and technology innovation, research and development agenda. Furthermore, NCST supports new high-impact areas of technology innovation and research that may be useful for the country’s development through strategic foresights.

We hope that, through this online channel, you will be able to learn about our Institution, who we are, what we are doing, and, hopefully, at which extend we can serve you or work with you as our potential partner

Thank you
