SCIENCE AND INNOVATION HUB
The Science and Innovation Hub is the ZNDU’s premier science-based growth centre designed to promote innovation and enable the development and translation of research outcomes to viable commercial products and services. It facilitates the creation, incubation and growth of innovation-based spin-off ventures along the product value chain. Despite being in its formative stage, the hub remains confident of conducting robust innovative research to generate and incubate scientific ideas to support the strategic role of the ZNDU.
The Pedagogy Centre (PD) though still at its infancy stage, envisages to be a community of academics, technologists and participants/students interested in the areas of pedagogy and teaching innovation. The Centre plans to hold regular meetings, seminars/workshops that are meant to discuss developments in pedagogy and good practice. Ultimately, the Centre aims to make an impact on teaching at the ZNDU by advancing new ideas and supporting development in teaching methods and excellence.
The Zimbabwe National Defence University’s Business Development Department was established in January 2019. Its main function is to generate funds to supplement the University’s income streams. This is achieved through running income generating projects, conducting commercially viable researches and engaging in viable business partnerships. The department envisages becoming a leading centre for entrepreneurship in line with its ten (10) year strategic plan (2019 – 2029).
