Why collaborate with The UWI?

#1 in the Caribbean

The University of the West Indies is rated as one of the best universities in the region. We’re ranked #1 in the Caribbean. We’re in the top 2% in Latin America. And we’re in the top 4% of universities in the world. UWI, St. Augustine is one of The UWI’s five campuses across the region.

Wide knowledge base

With more than 50 departments, specialised units, centres and institutes in Trinidad and Tobago, you can tap into our extensive research experience. Our work is deeply rooted in the Caribbean while being globally relevant.

Solid partnerships

We have a successful history of collaborating with industry, government, development agencies, civil society organisations and academia. Our hallmark at STACIE is activating the triple helix. We leverage these university-industry-government relationships to solve complex societal and economic problems.

We came to STACIE because we wanted to see what our carbon footprint was as a result of our reforestation programme. The researchers were the heroes of the project. They are definitely the experts in their field. Whatever we wanted to accomplish they had a proposal and a method for getting it done.
