The National Industrial Research and Development Agency (NIRDA) is leading a initiative to establish a joint STEM Industrial Product Development Facility which will act as an industrial technology incubation hub for Rwandan based industrial innovators drawing on STEM to develop industrial products, access advanced technologies, acquire and upgrade technical industrial skills and improve business capabilities.

This feasibility study was carried out by Technopolis Group for NIRDA and its partner Enabel to help determine the relevance, need, and expected socioeconomic benefits of investing into this project.

This report provides evidence about the needs for a STEM facility in Rwanda, defines the tasks and services of the STEM facility, defines the governance structure and operations of the STEM facility, estimates the costs and benefits of the STEM facility, and presents a tentative roadmap for the STEM facility.
