The Ministry

The Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI) was established in fulfillment of the constitutional requirements and the demands by the scientific stakeholder community. The Ministry is primarily responsible for creating an enabling policy environment for STI and national development as articulated in the National Science, Technology and Innovation (2009) Policy, the National Development Plan [NDP II: 2016/17 – 2019/20] and the Vision 2040. The Ministry is also expected to provide structural clarity and cohesion of the various Science, Engineering, Technology and Innovation institutions (SETIs) that are under the management of various Sector Ministries that comprise Uganda’s National Innovation System (NIS). Regional integration and cooperation on STI is expected to be fast-tracked by the ministry.
