Welcome to the Directorate of Research, Innovation and Consultancy (DRIC) of the University of Cape Coast (UCC). The DRIC is responsible for supervising activities related to research and innovation of faculty members as well as superintending the consultancy engagements of faculty. The Directorate is also tasked with the implementation of the University’s research agenda following the University’s aim to chart a common research theme capable of contributing substantially to national development. An Advisory Board that is chaired by the Vice Chancellor, and a Management Committee, chaired by the Pro-Vice Chancellor, are responsible for the governing of DRIC’s activities. As the Director responsible for the day-to-day administration of DRIC, I hope to provide strategic and timely leadership to improve DRIC’s growing recognition as a transparent and reputable research, innovation and consultancy service provider within and beyond Ghana. I wish you a stimulating experience as you explore our research portal. You are encouraged to visit our portal from time to time for updates on research grant opportunities, fellowship opportunities, and research findings as well as seize new and available opportunities to engage in contract research activities.
