Centre of Excellence for Livestock Innovation and Business (CoELIB)

The Centre of Excellence for Livestock Innovation and Business (CoELIB) has its origins in the iLINOVA (Innovation for the Livestock Industry) initiative that focused on strengthening capacity for participatory management of indigenous livestock to encourage agricultural innovation in Eastern, Southern and Western Africa. This initiative was coordinated by Egerton University in Kenya in collaboration with lead partners in the form of Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (LUANAR) in Malawi and Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) in Nigeria. One of the key tasks of this initiative was to establish a Centre of Excellence for livestock innovation and business that builds on existing capacity and fosters innovation and agri-business development.

Egerton University

Egerton University is the oldest institution of higher learning in Kenya. It was founded as a Farm School in 1939 by Lord Maurice Egerton of Tatton, a British national who settled in Kenya in the 1920s. In 1950, the School was upgraded to an Agricultural College offering diploma programmes. The Egerton Agricultural College Ordinance was enacted in 1955. In 1979, the Government of Kenya and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) funded a major expansion of the institution. In 1986, Egerton Agricultural College was gazetted as a constituent college of the University of Nairobi. The following year, 1987, marked the establishment of Egerton University through an Act of Parliament.
