“Business friendly environment does not mean absence of regulations as it is commonly mistaken. On the contrary, businesses need well regulated environments, which are rational, predictable, uniformly applied. We will seek to help policy makers to create such business environment in Uganda while sharing our know-how and developing local capacities for sustainable growth”, commented Mr. Rimantas Žylius, NRD AS managing director.
“At UTAMU, we are dedicated to nurturing a new generation of leaders in business and public sector with deep understanding of technologies and their impact on human behaviour. The partnerships with NRD AS is one sure way for us to achieve this goal”, said UTAMU Vice Chancellor Prof. Venansius Baryamureeba. “It is important to note that without understanding motivations of the people and other “soft” factors, technology will not be used to its full potential. With this Memorandum we are creating capacity to uncover and understand why some initiatives do not take off despite millions of dollars invested, and how should they be done to succeed”, commented Prof. Baryamureeba.
According to Prof. Baryamureeba, UTAMU will integrate the special focus areas of the MOU into its curricula and develop academic and applied research in these areas.
