Research Institutes

The CSIR-Oil Palm Research Institute was initially established as a division under the CSIR-Crop Research Institute in 1964 to take over the functions of the defunct West Africa Institute for Oil Palm Research (WAIFOR) which was responsible for provision of oil palm planting materials and research support to the West African Anglophone Countries. It was upgraded to a centre in 1979 and became a full-fledged institute in 1988 with the mandate to conduct demand-driven research aimed at providing scientific and technological support for the development of the oil palm industry. In 1992, the institute was additionally mandated to carry out research into coconut in general and Cape St. Paul’s Wilt Disease (CSPWD) in particular. The institute’s oil palm programme is based at Kusi, near Kade in the Eastern Region while the Coconut Programme is located at Sekondi-Takoradi in the Western Region. The institute is poised to become a center of excellence in oil palm and coconut research and a major supplier of improved planting materials of oil palm, coconut and relevant technologies in the sub-region.

The Plant Genetic Resources Research Institute (PGRRI) is one of the 13 research institutes (CSIR). The Institute was established in 1964 as a section of the Crops Research Institute (CRI) of CSIR and named Plant Introduction Exploration (PIE).

The Science and Technology Policy Research Institute (STEPRI) was established in 1987 under the (CSIR) to act as a focal point to articulate policy on national Science and Technology (S&T) development.  It was then known as the Technology Transfer Centre (TTC) and as a multidisciplinary unit, dealing with issues of technology utilization, transfer and development. 

The Building and Road Research Institute (BRRI)is one of the 13 research Institutes of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Reserch (CSIR) , Ghana. The BRRI was established in 1952 as the West African Building Research Institute in Accra.

Forestry Research Institute of Ghana is one of the 13 institutes of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). It is located at Fumesua near Kumasi in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. It started as a research unit within the Forestry Department in 1962.

The Water Research Institute (WRI) is one of the 13 institutes of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). It was formed in 1996 from the merger of the Institute of Aquatic Biology and the Water Resources Research Institute. WRI has a mandate to conduct research into water and related resources.

The CSIR-Soil Research Institute has the mandate to undertake inventory of the soil resources of Ghana and carry out scientific research to generate information and technologies for effective planning, utilization and management of the soil resources of Ghana for increased and sustainable agriculture, industry as well as ensuring safe and sound environment.

With a mandate to provide farmers in the Northern, Upper East and Upper West Regions with appropriate technologies to increase their food and fibre crop production based on sustainable production system which maintains and/or increase soil fertility, SARI and its partners made good progress during 2010 that we are happy to share with you.

The Institute for Scientific and Technological Information (INSTI) of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) is the hub of integrated scientific and technical information (STI) in Ghana that provides the major public research and academic institutions as well as the industrial sector with resources and services designed to improve dissemination of, and access to indigenous and international STI. 

The Institute of Industrial Research is one of the leading 13 Research Institutes of Ghana’s Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), the main Science and Technology Research and Development institution of Ghana. The overall aspirations of the Institute has been to assist in poverty reduction through the creation of opportunities for generating and increasing incomes within the SMEs; contribute towards food security, generate foreign exchange earnings and apply cost-effective industrial technologies that are both environmentally friendly and commercially viable.
