Thomas Webster Research Building

Development of PNG Knowledge Hub taking shape

PNG National Research Institute (PNGNRI) aims to transform its Waigani Campus into the PNG Knowledge Hub.

The hub will bring together a community of organisations, leaders, researchers, consultants, academics, government and private sector people. It will be focused in generating, processing, storing, transferring and applying knowledge.

NRI Director Dr Charles Yala said PNGNRI plans to start working on phase two which will be the refurbishment of the old library building.

PNGNRI launches new research building

The new Thomas Webster Research Building was officially opened today by Fabian Chow, the son of the late NRI Council chairman Sir Henry Chow, on the PNGNRI Waigani Campus.

The new building is one of the major components of the Knowledge Hub’s physical landscape and infrastructure.

NRI Director Dr Charles Yala thanked everyone during the launch that has contributed to the successful competition of the new infrastructure.
