…Committee to evaluate 63 research proposals

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has inaugurated an inter-agency committee for the evaluation and selection of the 2019 research proposals from the academia submitted to Commission.

Executive Vice Chairman (EVC) of NCC, Prof. Umar Danbatta, who inaugurated the Commission at the NCC Headquarters in Abuja on Wednesday, October 2, 2019, said the exercise was consistent with NCC’s objective of promoting telecommunications-based innovations through funding of industry-relevant research proposed by academics in the Nigerian universities.

Danbatta, who was represented at the Committee’s inauguration by Haru Alhassan, NCC’s Director of New Media and Information Security, stated that the Committee members drawn from different agencies and academic institutions across the country, will “evaluate a total of 63 proposals from the academia submitted to the NCC.”

The EVC urged the Committee members “to be dispassionate, honest and fair” in their assessment, in keeping with NCC’s desire to further develop and increase world-class local content input in the Nigerian telecommunications industry.

“The Committee is expected to be thorough and provide reliable advice that will assist the Commission in achieving its objective of promoting telecommunications-based innovations in the academia,” Danbatta said.
