Education-Training-Research-Industry Linkage (ETRIIL)

Education, Training, Research Institutions, and Industries Linkage (ETRIIL) has been prioritized as a key modality to transfer the government development goal from Agriculture-led industry to industrialization. To this end, policies and directives have been issued with a clear understanding that UIL is a fundamental and sustainable modality to achieve the development goal of the country.

As per the ETRIIL directive issued in September 2013, the four stakeholders are expected to undertake six joint activities collaboratively. The activities include applied research, technology transfer, and adaptation, consulting services, capacity building, internship, and externship activities.

The government is the key body responsible for leading, coordinating, and facilitating linkages. It gets its responsibilities discharged through the National Council and Ministry of Science and Higher Education (MoSHE) mandated to facilitate interaction and collaboration of the four groups of stakeholders with a view of enhancing research and technology development.

Since 2015, ECPMI has been coordinating the Construction Works and Housing Development ETRIIL Cluster that comprises six regional forums each of which constitutes the relevant regulatory bodies, project owners, universities, TVETs, and professional associations representatives found in the respective localities. With the support and facilitation of the institute, in 2016 a Roadmap ( Download the file) was prepared to promote and establish symbiotic relationships among the Universities, TVETs, Research centers and Industries in five strategic areas: Technology Transfer, Research, Consultancy, Training and Internship/Externship.

With the ETRIIL framework, ECPMI has so far conducted 11 types of research in collaboration with 7 Universities and is now on the process of launching National Productivity Norm preparation for the building sector (under progress) by commissioning the task to 9 universities located within the productivity regions.
