Formation of ReGIG


The Research and Grant Institute of Ghana (ReGIG) was founded in 2017 as an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit organization to promote research and innovation in Ghana. ReGIG was founded in response to the near-neglect and inadequate support for research and innovation in Ghana. Since its establishment, ReGIG has been partnering with national, regional, and international institutions, organizations, and agencies to stimulate, facilitate, demand, and celebrate the highest standard of excellence in research and innovation in Ghana.
