I would like to raise some issues pertaining to the potential of research as an economic engine. These are: The purpose of research; The Place and Status of Researchers and Institutions in Society; The Issue of the Quality of Research as a Security concern at the national and local levels; Individual Obligations and Responsibilities to the State and Society; and the Challenge in Kenyan Research Institutions.
