Welcome to the Scientific and Industrial Research and Development Centre

Welcome to the Scientific and Industrial Research and Development Centre (SIRDC), Zimbabwe’s Technology Centre. Established in 1993 by an Act of Parliament, SIRDC provides technological solutions for sustainable development through reduction to practice of developed products and processes. As a consequence of this thrust SIRDC has commercialised some of its products through Sirtech Investments (Pvt) Ltd.
SIRDC comprises twelve institutes whose activities can be grouped broadly to cover biotechnology, electronics, energy technology, environment and remote sensing, building construction, material science, metallurgy, information and communication technology, and metrology. The specific institutes are:

Polymer Sciences Institute

 

SIRDC also has the following support departments: Business Operations Unit, Finance, Farming Operations, Human Resources, Purchasing, Transport, Audit, Cafeteria, Works and Physical Planning, and Public Relations. In addition, SIRDC administers the Food and Nutrition Council (FNC), and the Technological and Commercial Information Promotion System (TIPS), which complement the Centre's activities.
Teamwork at SIRDC, as espoused through strict adherence to the Stage Gate process is the driving force behind the successful and rapid product development.
