R&D Symposium in Lagos, Nigeria

On the 8th and 9th of July, a R&D symposium, sponsored by the RSC and Procter & Gamble, was held in Lagos, Nigeria, covering the topics of regulatory harmonisation, hygiene and sustainability. The two day conference included a trip to the University of Lagos, where a collaboration laboratory was announced between P&G and the university. P&G will be sponsoring a select number of African students to carry out 6-month internships in Lagos, encouraging industry collaboration and local scientific innovation in Africa. The meeting also prompted RSC representatives in Nigeria to initiate the process of setting up two local sections in the country.
