Research License

The Commission receives and considers applications for research in/outside the country for clearance and issuance of Research Permits. The objective of Research Clearance and Authorization is to examine the various research proposals submitted to the NACOSTI, and ensure that permits are issued to research projects/programs which are in the interest of the Government and people of Kenya. In addition it facilitates the approved research projects/programs access to data from public institutions and officials as well as other sources.

NACOSTI has a web-based Online System for Research Permit Application.
