On July 19th, Dr. Yim visited UNCST as a follow-up to the MOU signed between STEPI and UNCST in June 2016 when Dr. Jong Guk Song (President of STEPI) paid a visit to UNCST. Uganda has been emphasizing the development of technological capabilities. As a nation promoting the IT-based start-up and technology commercialization, the country recently established the Ministry of Science and Technology. UNCST will support the development of the Ministry and this visit to the Council will contribute to strengthen the cooperation between two countries.
