Mission of the Project Coordination Directorate Office

It is only less than two decades since Bahir Dar University was officially established as a University. Regardless, this very young institution has been performing promising researches and has a vision to be one of the ten high research universities in Africa by 2025 (http://www.bdu.edu.et/page/mission-and-vision). Its large number of graduate and post-graduate students and wealthy staff profile are among the most crucial parameters to achieve this proposed vision. To meet the above plan, performing a competitive and cutting-edge research through intense global collaboration is mandatory. Therefore, an up-to-date research facilities and research funds are highly demanded. To assist Bahir Dar University's staffs for the development of project proposal and strengthen the scientific research, a Project Coordination Directorate Office (PCDO) was established in Bahir Dar University in late 2016. The main focus and responsibility of the PCDO of Bahir Dar University is to bring a strong culture of performing cutting-edge applied and fundamental scientific research through national, continent, and international collaborations. This is doable through tense and highly competitive academic collaborations with the top performing world class Universities and institutions.  To realize this,  a huge amount of research grants and funds are required. These days research grants are offered to team of scientists in a competitive way from different parts of the globe who aim to combine their experts to tackle certain problems in an innovative approach and to further question so as to widen the horizon of human knowledge. The PCDO office will gladly assist the researchers and post-graduate students of Bahir Dar University so as to develop a quality grant proposal by providing all the necessary technical and logistical support.

    Thus, do not hesitate to contact us anytime when our need is required and always we are looking forward to assisting you!! smiley
