21 CONCEPTUAL DISCOURSE

22 Research is often described as a deliberate, methodical investigation or study into a subject to discover, establish or to develop a plan of action or new products based on the facts discovered.

23 Development is simply the process of converting knowledge into a new or better product.

25 TRANSFORMATION AGENDA

26 OVERALL OBJECTIVE OF NN TRANSFORMATION PLAN 2011-2020
To achieve and sustain effective capacity to carry out her statutory roles.

27 THE 8 LINES OF DEVELOPMENT OF NN TRANSFORMATION PLAN 2011-2020
1. Concept and Organisation Fleet Renewal Logistics Infrastructure Training ICT HRM Inter Agency and Sub Regional Cooperation

31 OVERVIEW OF R & D IN THE NN

32 DIRECTORATE OF R & D

33 Established under the then Fleet Maintenance Corps , vide NNO 03/90 of March Then, it was mandated to coordinate NN Ships’ procurement processes, through the formulation of concepts, feasibility studies and project definition.

34 OTHER TASKS OF THE R&D DIRECTORATE
Production. Post design/disposal of equipment. Data acquisition and processing.

35 THREE SUB DIRECTORATES OF R&D
Design. Test. Evaluation and Data.

36 However, the Design Sub directorate has now been transformed into a full Directorate under the Dept of Policy and Plans

48 CHALLENGES OF R & D IN THE NN

49 CHALLENGES Lack of appropriate human resources, structures, offices and facilities. Lack of commitment to innovation. Lack of R & D policy guidelines. Inadequate fundng for R&D. Lack of private sector participation in R&D. Lack of collaboration with civil R&D complexes.

50 SOME CIVIL R&D COMPLEXES
Federal Institute of Industrial Research Oshodi (FIIRO). National Research Institute of Chemical Technology (NARICT) Zaria. Projects Development Agency (PRODA). National Agency for Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI). Engineering Materials Industry (EMI) Sango Ota. Machine Tools Company Oshogbo. Associated Batteries Manufacturing Ibadan.

59 STRATEGIES AND STRUCTURES FOR IMPLEMENTING R & D IN THE NN

60

61 STRATEGIES AND STRUCTURES FOR IMPLEMENTING R & D IN THE NN
1. Policy objectives.

62

63 STRATEGIES AND STRUCTURES FOR IMPLEMENTING R & D IN THE NN
Policy objectives. Strategies.

64

65 STRATEGIES 1..NNRI is to be the fulcrum of R & D activities in the NN.
2. R & D cells are to be established in relevant NN units including NND, FSGs, NNEC, NNS QUORRA, NNSAT, NOD, etc. NNRI is to outsource R & D projects where feasible. NN is to promote R & D through tertiary institutions, government labs, research institutions and private sector stakeholders. 5. NN shall budget properly for R & D as well as liaise with FMST to secure special funds for R & D. 6. The NN shall engage individuals with relevant skills and expertise to undertake R & D in appropriate research institutions. 7. The NN shall undertake reverse engineering practices for technology transfer. 8. The NN shall provide grants and endowment funds to individuals and institutions to actively participate in relevant R and D activities. 9. The NN shall recommend tax relief/ holidays for Defence contractors willing to invest in local R and D, the higher the technology value addition, the higher the relief.

70 CONCLUSION

71

72 RECOMMENDATIONS

73 RECOMMENDATIONS 1.The relevant NN authorities should activate the NNRI for proper manning as an autonomous R and D establishment. 2.The NN authorities should endorse the R &D draft policy for implementation.
