Management of Ho Technical University has awarded close to Ghc62,000 to some deserving lecturers to support their research and innovation projects.  

The awardees become the first beneficiaries of the HTU Research Fund, which was launched in December last year to drive the research and innovation agenda of the University.   

At a brief ceremony on Thursday, October 6, 2022 to award successful applicants, Dr. Jennifer Adaletey, Ag. Director of External Funds Office, who oversaw the process, said the recipients were selected through a rigorous review process, in line with the University’s Research Guidelines.

According to her, about 15 research proposals were received from individuals and groups across various departments, of which eight were shortlisted for the grant.  Two of the proposals were individual led, while the rest were team led, she stated. She indicated that, the awardees have a one year duration to complete their respective researches.

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Ben Q. Honyenuga, who did the presentation to the awardees, commended them for taking the lead in accessing the Research Fund to contribute to the advancement of knowledge in their respective fields.

He urged them to carry out their projects with strict adherence to the stated rules of engagement, stating that, the quality of their works would impact positively on their individual credentials and the University’s image.

According to the Vice-Chancellor, the operationalisation of the HTU Research Fund, which has an annual seed money of GHc100,000 has ushered the University into a new phase of its mandate, and encouraged all faculty members to take advantage of the fund to hone their research and innovation skills, while contributing to societal development.

‘Management is committed to providing the needed leadership and support towards attaining our collective mandate as a University. Let’s all come on board to advance our progress.’

Prof. Honyenuga also commended the various committees and reviewers who worked on the successful roll out of the Research Fund, as he announced the taking over the administration of the Fund by the newly created Directorate of Research and Innovation.

Prof. Christopher Mensah, the Pro-Vice-Chancellor, said research was an expensive venture, hence implementation of the HTU Research fund was a good start.

He urged the recipients to put the funds to its intended purpose, and reminded them to also publish their final works in the University’s recommended journals. This, he noted would be key in their progression in the University.

Dr. Emmanuel Letsyo, Director of Research and Innovation, said his outfit would monitor the activities of the awardees, and also address any concern that would arise during the execution of their various research projects.  He also pledged to ensure awardees who are to provide counterpart funding for their projects, do so in order to ensure a successful implementation.

Miss Joy Afua Agama, a team lead, on behalf of the awardees, thanked University Management for the support and assured that, they would put the funds to its intended use.
