Research Database (2003-2005 EC)

I.  Number of research activities

At Bahir Dar University, the 12 Academic Units and now close to 10 Research Centers/Institutes conduct various research activities. Here we report research activities of Academic Units. A total of 272 researches (ongoing and new ones) are being carried out. Several research activities have been stopped because of staff turnover (particularly study leave) and lack of necessary inputs. Pertinent findings gained from the various researches are being written and will be communicated soon.
