Through vision and foresight, Government established the Research Council of Zimbabwe (RCZ) to spearhead and coordinate Zimbabwe’s research enterprise, with a view to promote, direct, supervise and coordinate research for national interest, and to advise Government on policy imperatives pertinent to research and development.  For it is through research that scientific knowledge is generated and harnessed for the emergence of new goods and services for the country to occupy its niche in the global economy.


RCZ sits as the pivotal leader steering demand-driven research for wealth creation and sustainable development as Zimbabwe seeks to attain middle income economy status, thereby improving the standard of life, productivity and prosperity by 2030.  RCZ has been hard at work coordinating seven (7) Zimbabwe National Geospatial and Space Agency (ZINGSA) projects from their inception to present.  We are a member to the Science Granting Council Initiatives (SGCI) which is a collaboration of science councils in the world.  Through these partnerships RCZ is spearheading specific projects with international collaborations including Malawi, Botswana and Canada.


RCZ protects Zimbabwe’s interests by monitoring research conducted in Zimbabwe by scholars and other persons who are not citizens or permanent residents.
