@iLabAfrica is a Centre of Excel­lence in ICT innov­a­tion and Devel­op­ment based at Strath­more Uni­ver­sity. It was estab­lished to address the Mil­len­nium Devel­op­ment Goals(MDGs) and to con­trib­ute toward Kenya’s Vis­ion 2030. The research cen­ter is involved in inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research, stu­dents engage­ment, col­lab­or­a­tion with gov­ern­ment, industry and other fund­ing agen­cies.  Our Vis­ion is to be a lead­ing Centre of Excel­lence in the uses of ICT for development while Our Mis­sion is to provide an envir­on­ment that pro­motes tech­no­lo­gical innov­a­tion and provides busi­ness sup­port struc­tures and policy dir­ec­tion to har­ness the poten­tial of ICT as a genu­ine tool for sus­tain­able development.
