Explain your idea in details:

Objective: The main objective of this idea is to provide a platform for Nigerian students and graduates to acquire research skills and hands-on exposure to laboratory techniques used in developed countries. It is my hope that through the program, Nigerian diplomas and graduates will be evaluated as being of worth and at par with that of developed countries. My dream is that through this program, every Nigerian graduate will have hands-on exposure to basic laboratory equipment. Participation in the trainings from the Center for Laboratory Skills Acquisition (CLSA) will be open to undergraduates (during their internship) and to graduates (during or after their NYSC). It will also be open to lecturers and professors who desire to acquire skills and certification on any equipment of choice. The center will also be open to graduate students who may want to conduct analyses wither by themselves or by sending the samples to the laboratory for analyses. The laboratory will also be open to international researchers and visitors who may desire training and or to conduct independent research using the facility. The facility shall be equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for chemical, biochemical, biological, environmental and biotechnological analyses.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

As a measure of success, it is my expectation that in the first 5 to 10 years, the CLSA would have trained between 500-1000 Nigerians. The center would have gained international reputation and would have had international scholars who would conduct independent/ collaborative research with our graduates. It is my expectation that credentials from our institution would have stood out internationally as a mark of competence in research methodologies among Nigerians and Africans at large. I also expect to have had tertiary institutions who would collaborate with the CLSA for advanced research programs I also hope that the number of Nigerian graduate students who travel overseas for various analyses would have reduced significantly. I expect to have created more than 100 jobs directly and 1000 jobs indirectly via this establishment. It is my hope that graduates from our establishment would have gained employment both at local and international organizations/ firms or would have become competent enough to gain admission to advanced research programs in high ranking institutions globally.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

Funding for this project will be from loans, venture capitalists, private funds and equipment manufacturers Strength and Opportunity At the moment, there is a dearth of state-of-the-art infrastructure for laboratory exposure for science and engineering students. A lot of Nigerian graduates are seen as half-baked. No tertiary institution can boast of being well equipped to international standards Most Nigerian institutions mandate their graduate students to travel to developed countries over a period of time in order to conduct advanced scientific analyses. This causes even the intelligent but non-affluent students to shy away from such graduate programs. Setting up this facility will not only provide opportunity for such people to advance their skills but will also provide an enabling environment for high quality research output, advanced research and international collaborative research. Weakness and Threat The project is capital intensive, Would need uninterrupted power supply but uninterrupted power supply shall be provided using wind turbines and solar panels, the structure will be built using mostly glass in order to exploit the ambience of natural lightning to reduce power usage. It may be too expensive for the average Nigerian without subsidization.

Your profile

My name is Anyaduba Tochukwu Dubem. I am a 31 year old Nigerian with very strong belief that my country and in fact, any country can be developed if education is given due attention. I have a BSc in Microbiology (Nigeria) and MSc in Environmental Biotechnology (UK). I am also studying for another MSc in Interdisciplinary Graduate Studies, specializing in Civil and Environmental Engineering, Environmental Science and Biorenewable Resources and Technologies (USA). I am an environmentalist with aptitude for interpretation of my theoretical knowledgebase into tangible development-centered projects and structures. My dream is to understand and teach science and engineering from inside-out and to focus on applied education. I have been to several developed countries and my greatest curiosity has been to understand what really makes their academia tick and how they have been so successful both towards infrastructural and economic development. My dream is to contribute to the development of my country, my continent and the world at large by giving education in Nigeria a meaning. My ideas are mostly at conceptual stage as most may need advanced resources and research for further development but they are dreams I hope to live and achieve before I retire. I hope to lay a strong foundation for generations-unborn; on which they can stand to bridge the gap between western education and Nigerian academic credentials. Please vote for me.

Hello fellow passenger,

You might have heard the famous song "What I've done" by Linkin park. The lyrics have been beautifully carved by the late singer Chester Bennington. The song covers the ways in which our so called development has helped only a handful of the upper society members, whereas people are still living in poverty.

We have a great platform here which is urging super brains from around the world to come together and collaborate with their ideas and help make this world a better place to live in. You have been a part of this community and I congratulate you on your effort that you have put in.

Thanks once again and all the best for the future

All the best for your project.As today is the last day of competition I am glad that I was able to read your mind blowing project.
Best wishes for your success and thank you so much for your support on my project.

August 31, 2017 20:21

Comrades,
In this fight for a sustainable future, what we need is innovation; something which is not necessarily new, but which makes us look at things from a different angle.

I believe this is one of the major motives of this community which we are a part of. Taking one step together hand in hand towards our goal is the only way we can achieve it.

So I wish you the very best in this endeavour of yours and hope to see you together in the new tomorrow

Hello,
Being a part of India's well-known Entrepreneurship Cell of the most prestigious engineering college in India, I have interacted with many startup enthusiasts, have got to know how they think and what are some qualities that set them apart from the ones who are not able to see their idea through. Reading through your idea, I have realised that your idea has that spark which can help it become a successful venture. Coupled with its aim to help the society achieve its goals sustainably, your idea can be something quite helpful for the same.

But before it's implementation, you need to do a "premortem" check on how it can fail. This would prepare you for any uncalled-for circumstances and help you prepare for them accordingly.

Lastly, I would like you to have a look at our idea, GreenSpace, and share your views about the same.

Regards,
Team GreenSpace.

Continue until you achieve this noble goal, as a student in Nigeria I can attest to the poor quality of laboratories in our institutions making it extremely hard for us to understand the practical aspects of any course of study and I suggest that you should collaborate with the universities to be using your facilities in teaching their students During their school days. Thanks in advance for this initiative. Best of Luck.

Hi,
After going through your idea, I firmly believe that you can successfully convert it to an executable project and help the society grow in a sustainable manner. I wish you the best for the same.

I would really appreciate if you could go through my idea as well(follow this link https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/12/5961/comments). Our idea deals with covering an otherwise unused rooftop of a building with green plants, and using that space for a multitude of activities. This would have various positive effects on the environment and also the society in general.

Thank you

Your idea is very important and highly needed in our country where research especially in some universities is usually done just for grades than the discovery of solutions, I fully support your project's implementation. Wish you the best with it.

Kindest regards,

It is a good idea and it should be implemented in many countries. I have an idea with the same goals as yours (Path To Knowledge) and it would be great if there will be in every country at least one person who understands the importance of digitization and the digital training. I wish you all the best!

@ Shuhra/ Koofi,

Great Question! I said this is a great question because poor consideration of the citing of the laboratories may trigger socio-political bias. However, from my basic knowledge of economics, businesses are best set up either close to the source of raw materials or close to the market. In this case, I would consider proximity to the market.

By definition in the context of my business plan, "market" would refer to any part of Nigeria with the greater density of institutions of higher learning. Any part of Nigeria with the most number of universities around, by inference, will determine the citing.

As I also mentioned, accommodation will be provided for out-of-region visitors or any visitor who may want to stay around for a period of time for the purpose of research or training.

Thank you once again for your questions.
