TRIAS: Turning Dreams into Opportunities


Trias is an international development organization headquartered in Brussels working to help make the dreams of enterprising people all over the world come true.

Whatever your name or nationality, we all have dreams. However, the hopes of most people on our planet are thwarted by poverty, illiteracy, corruption or discrimination. Every day, such obstacles cause the talents of hundreds of millions of people go to waste. 

Trias combats the barriers to self-development that are currently holding enterprising people around the world back from fulfilling their ambitions. This is our mission.

We ensure that people work together, regardless of their race, age or gender. By supporting 117 farmers’ and entrepreneurs’ associations, we create a strong and sustainable basis to raise family income for 3.2 million members and transform entire communities.

Across Africa, Asia and Latin America, Trias reinforces farmers’ organizations and entrepreneurs’ associations. This allows underprivileged entrepreneurs to gain access to professional training, affordable microcredits, profitable markets and an active protection of their interests. This approach offers the best guarantee for sustainable economic development.

Development cooperation is a matter of like-minded people working across borders to promote mutual self-development. This is our vision.

Trias also functions as a hub for international cooperation between enterprising people. We seek to facilitate knowledge exchange between equals, firm in the belief that the disadvantaged family farmers and small business owners we work with can make their own dreams come true.

UIRI – Uganda Industrial Research Institute


UIRI was formally established by an Act of Parliament in 2002. H.E. the President to the Act on 30th July 2003. It is a progeny of the East African Industrial Research Organization (ESIRO) of the defunct East African Community (EAC)]. After the demise of the then EAC in 1977, the three member states continued with the splintered Industrial Research Organizations, and hence was born:

Kenya Industrial Research and Development Institute (KIRDI)
Tanzania Industrial Research and Development Institute (TIRDI)
Uganda Industrial Research Institute (UIRI)

With Uganda’s economic dislocation of the 70s and 80s, UIRI did not become fully operational until 1997 when, with a grant from the Government of People’s Republic of China (GPRC) a campus was built and some technologies for pilot plants installed. The formal handover of the modern facility to Uganda Government was effected in the year 2000. UIRI’s mandate is to engage in activities that will lead to rapid industrialization of Uganda.
