The Vice-Chancellor, Osun State University, Prof. Clement Adebooye, has said scholars from the university won a total of US$12 million in research grants, in the first half of the year 2023.
The VC linked the development to the encouragement the management has given to the staff of the institution to proffer solutions to global problems.
Adebooye disclosed this in reaction to the recent feat achieved by the University’s Director of Global Affairs and Sustainable Development Institute, Prof John Agbonifo and the Director of the Office of Research and Innovation Management, Prof. Olukoya Ogen, who formed a research consortium with Professor Jean-Marc Trouille of Bradford University, for a research project titled ‘The European Union and Africa in a Multi Crises World.”
A statement by the UNIOSUN Public Relations Officer, Ademola Adesoji, on Saturday explained that the project was funded by the ERASMUS-JMO-2023-NETWORKS-HEI-NON-EU-AFRICA to the tune of €7,800,000.
The statement partly read, “Professor Agbonifo is a key facilitator of the project, while Professor Ogen is the Project Financial Signatory.
