About NCS Tech-Innovation Development Fund

Nigeria Computer Society (NCS), the umbrella body for all Information Technology practitioners and interest groups, is indeed concerned with the current world ratings of Nigeria Information Technology (IT). While appreciating the efforts of the government and other stakeholders in the progress Nigeria has made in promoting and supporting IT development, NCS has noted that a lot still needs to be done

It is obvious that the key ingredients to leapfrogging IT development in this country are research and innovations.  NCS introduced NCS Tech-Innovation Development Fund (NTIDF) to provide the necessary support for developmental research and innovations in Information Technology.
