From Dreams to Reality

In a night of reflection and fond reminiscence at the Hyatt Regency on Saturday 17th January, NIHERST celebrated its 30th anniversary and also bid farewell to outgoing President, Maureen Manchouck. Following the theme, “Ode to Dreams”, the gala event chronicled NIHERST’s history, from a fledgling organization driving pioneering and progressive ventures in scientific research and tertiary education, into one of the country’s leading institutions focused on developing a strong national culture of science, technology and innovation (STI), particularly through its flagship science popularisation initiative.

The institute commemorated its many achievements since its incorporation in 1984, and paid tribute to their leader who had served the organisation for 35 years. It also honoured its relationships and partnerships with key persons and institutions that have been part of its success over the decades.
