About Us

The FUDMA Centre for Innovation and Development (FUCID) is the knowledge development hub of Federal University Dutsin-Ma. It was established to expand the frontier of knowledge and facilitate its application for enhanced development outcome.

Against the backdrop of lacuna created by the traditional disciplinary specialization, the Centre’s intervention strategy is designed to provide a multidisciplinary approach to studying the multifaceted problem of development. Furthermore, through our commitment to proactive engagement in activities that promote adoption of innovation we hope to make a difference in the business development intervention.

FUCID’s philosophy is inspired by the concept of developmental university which advocates for an expanded role that transcends the boundary of knowledge generation and dissemination to active collaboration with industries, governments and other nodes within an innovation ecosystem in order to bring new knowledge to fruitful use.

To this end activities in the Centre are designed to reflect the main elements of this view and comprise of the dual role of knowledge creation and knowledge transfer.

Though we operate in the global, priority attention is accorded themes that are of significant interest to our immediate local community. These include areas such as poverty, agriculture and rural development, Islamic finance, SMEs and informal economy, climate change, education and health, institution and corruption among others.
