Established with a commitment to advancing knowledge and skills, TRIDI plays a pivotal role in shaping a future where entrepreneurship, productivity, and manufacturing thrive.
Up Coming Events
Commercialization of Sericulture Technologies and Innovations in Uganda project was part of the innovation projects which were supported by Innovation Fund in the FY2017/2018 in accordance with guidelines from H.E The President of the Republic of Uganda to support scientists to commercialize their innovations. Since it’s inception, this project is partly supported by the Government of Uganda through The Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovations (MoSTI) and supervised by The Uganda National Council for Science and Technology (UNCST).
At TRIDI, we believe in fostering a diverse and inclusive community of learners. Our admissions process is designed to identify individuals with a passion for science, technology, and innovation, preparing them for a dynamic and impactful academic experience.
Under the Commercialization of Sericulture Technologies in Uganda Project, we envision increasing industrialization and export development through sustainable adoption of sericulture technologies. Our mission is to achieve excellence in utilizing next-generation research outputs to transform Uganda’s sericulture industry from subsistence to sustainable commercial production.
Enhancing Breeding of Goats and Sheep
At TRIDI, we recognize the pivotal role of genetic adaptability in the livestock industry. Our project on enhancing the breeding of goats and sheep is designed to harness the power of genomics and community-based breeding programs, ultimately contributing to the resilience and productivity of small ruminants in Uganda.
Breeding of Sorghum for Striga Resistance & Drought Tolerance
At TRIDI, we embark on a mission to enhance the resilience of sorghum crops through innovative breeding programs.
