Technical liaison desks were set up to facilitate and institutionalise university-industry-civil society links. A mobile application system to enhance information access on livestock production and management was developed. The multipurpose centre at Egerton University was renovated – renamed to Centre of Excellence for Livestock Innovation and Business, CoELIB – and hosts recording, meeting, laboratory and office spaces, as well as the African Academy of Dairy Sciences. The Centre acts as a think tank (for business information, technology, innovation, markets and entrepreneurship); provides links to access finances, business ideas, risk insurance, loans and markets; incubates business ideas and innovations; and provides business start-up advice, mentorship and guidance in the livestock value chain. A memorandum of understanding with the African Agribusiness Incubation Network enables CoELIB to be one of the region’s incubation centres.
