Africans contribute less than 1% of the world’s research, despite facing the toughest developmental challenges.
We are creating platforms to enable more training, visibility, collaboration and support for African researchers.

Making Research Cool Again!
Every year, thousands of Africans graduate from the university with at least one work of research. However, the impact of these millions of hours are few as most of them end up being unnoticed and wasted. Research serves as one of the opportunities for many undergraduate and post graduate students to solve problems in African communities and advance knowledge about Africa. However, if they are not interested, this type of innovative work will not happen. Thus, we are helping undergraduates and post graduate students own their research and get the right support, training and clarity to enable them do meaningful work.
What Approaches Are We Taking?
Since our first foray into this space, we have realized that a few more things need to be done before people can publish good research consistently.
Educating Africans on the research and research opportunities.
Providing the right training online and offline to create meaningful research.
Creating a platform to share works of research in clear concise language.
Helping to build a network that enables researchers work together.
Harnessing resources that can help African researchers progress.
Join Our Community
We are building a community of minds interested in advancing research in Africa. Through our community, we hope to provide important research information, opportunities, trainings and support to foster the work of researchers. Do you belong to any academic institutions or research institute and want to be part of our movement?
Please Give Us Some Minutes
Have you done any form of research before? Will you be doing one soon? Please help us in understanding the gaps and progress in African Research by taking this survey. Takes less than 10 minutes.
The LUNE Program
We help researchers gain a better understanding of the intellectual process of inquiry, analysis and synthesis while having the opportunity to experience personal and professional growth. The LUNE program is a series of capacity building program for emerging and established researchers.
Publish With ResearchRound
We publish works of research by Africans. Our approach is to publish research works in article formats that are clear, concise, and easy meaningful to the average reader. While not all research works can easily be in this form, we advocate for clear communication. Publications are digital. ResearchRound is a Platinum Open Access platform.
We launched the Habeeb Prize for Innovation and Research in January 2020. We will however be giving the first prize in 2021 to what is deemed the most impact research from any tertiary institution in Africa.
This prize comprises of a diploma, a medal, and a cash prize of 100,000 NGN. Only works published on the ResearchRound platform are considered for now.
