Alliance University 360 degree vertual tour
Research plays a critical role in both knowledge inventory and transformation at various levels in any growing economy.

In particular, there will be a focus on encouraging and empowering communities to attain “sustainable living” through indigenous practices backed by modern technologies as needed. This will encompass areas of education, health, water and energy conservation.
