The UWI Mona’s signature Research Days presentation (URD) from February 7-9, 2018 will help commemorate this major milestone over an exciting and stimulating three days. Visitors will learn more about the research directions being taken by our faculty and students, and how this new knowledge will change the world around us. Also and importantly, the Annual UWI Mona Research Days (URD) effort continues to give the opportunity for Businesses and other interests to explore how research can boost profitability and development.
Some of the Mona Campus’ research successes include the Caribbean climate change policies influenced by the work of Professor Michael Taylor et al, as well as 1991 national socio-economic research of Patricia Anderson and Michael Witter, that eventually birthed the Programme of Advancement Through Health and Education (PATH).
