'We Need To Turn Research Works From Universities Into Massive Industries'– John Dumelo
John Dumelo reveals that research works by students are gathering dust whereas industry can take advantage of some of the works to ensure innovation
John Dumelo who is a known entrepreneur and a politician has expressed worry over the gap between Academia and Industry, as he shared an interesting intuition about the Ghana Education system.
He focused his tweet on the wide gap between Academia and the business community where several research works haven’t been pursued to bring something substantial to the country.
He urged the universities in Ghana to visit these shelves with several untouched research works and start transforming them into massive industries.
He tweeted: "We need to bridge the gap between Academia and the business community. The number of research work done and sitting on the shelves of various Ghana Universities is appalling. We need to get them off the shelves and turn them into massive industries.
Soireenews recalled that John Dumelo recently asserted that the entire Ghanaian education system needs a complete overhaul.
According to him, the system is a flawed one because it is designed to make the student look for jobs after school.
He suggested that it is should be the case adding that the system should shift from the current system and this will greatly benefit the student.
