  • Exhibitions commence on 6th March through to 10th March 2017.
  • This year’s theme is “Innovating to Solve Pressing Local and Global Challenges.”

Speaking during the signing ceremony, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Peter Mbithi, said that indeed UoN is proud to be associated with NMG in the NIW2017.
