GLOBAL PARTNERSHIPS FOR LOCAL SOLUTIONS

Category : Uncategorized

COVID-19 is changing the world.
Most countries have banned exports. Nigeria could be in serious trouble. How can we survive if we can’t import the goods we need?

Clintonel Innovation Centre (CIC) is on a mission to build capacity in Nigeria for Engineering Innovation, Indigenous Products Development and Manufacturing.
We’re helping to build a Nigeria that produces what she consumes.

We are pleased to announce a partnership with Autodesk, the global producer of engineering software (including AutoCAD, Inventor, Fusion360, etc.)

This is one of the Global Partnerships we’re building to enable us bridge the Engineering Skills Gap in Nigeria, preparing our engineers to meet the demand for Indigenous Products Development and Manufacturing.

Together, we’re building the Nigeria of our Dreams.

Solving Energy Problem in Nigeria; A Better Approach.

Category : Uncategorized

The Energy Crisis in Nigeria seems to be getting worse each day with our growing population. South Africa, with a population of 62 million, produces 40,000MW of energy while Nigeria, with a population of 200 million, produces barely 4500MW of energy.
 
 
To solve this National crisis, Clintonel Innovation Centre – CIC through Skill up Abia, is training young Nigerians to become experts in renewable energy.
