University Of Lagos To Showcase Zero Emission Car At Research Fair

The University of Lagos has attracted at least N5 billion from international agencies in the last one year to drive research activities.

Prof. Dixon Akinleye, Chairman, Sub Committee (Abstract), made the disclosure at a news conference in Lagos to announce the institution’s 14th Research Conference and Fair.

He said that the university would, at the conference and fair, showcase a zero emission car invented from the funding.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the conference will take place from Aug. 21 to Aug. 23 with the theme: “Automation and Artificial Intelligence: Opportunities for 21st Century Research and Development”.

Akinleye said that the foreign grants had gone a long way in supporting the university in its quest for more research activities and innovations.

“In the last one year, this university has attracted about N5 billion by way of external funding for research and development.

“One of such grants is for the invention of a zero emission car which is one of the things to be showcased at the forthcoming conference.

“Prof. Samson Adeosun, Lead Scientist, led a group of students from the Faculty of Engineering to achieve this feat.

“Also, part of what this grant has done for us as an institution is that some teams are looking at coming up with a solar refrigerator and cooler as well as solar incubator.
