ABOUT DGTRI

The Directorate of Graduate Training, Research and Innovation (DGTRI) at Muni University was fully operationalized in 2022; however, some of its activities were initially implemented under the Research and Innovation department. Structurally, Directorate reports to the University Senate through the Board of Graduate Training, Research Innovation (BoGTRI). The Graduate Training arm of DGTRI links with faculties and departments while the Research and Innovation arm has three departments, namely: Research and Innovation, Grants, and Intellectual Property Protection. The Muni University Research Ethics Committee (REC) is hosted under the Research and Innovation Department.
