In 2016, the United Nations General Assembly officially established the Technology Bank Project aimed at supporting and strengthening Science, Technology and Innovations (STI) in selected Least Developed Countries (LDCs). The focus area of the project was to promote digital access to research and technology in LDCs. Working in partnership with research4life, a partnership of 5 UN agencies (WHO, FAO, WIPO, ILO, UNEP), highly rated science publishers, Cornell and Yale Universities, that have been providing free access to global academic research through the five research4life programmes, as well as in collaboration with the Uganda Focal Persons, the Technology Bank aims to achieve its objective. The DAR (Digital Access to Resources) activities of the Technology Bank started in September 2018, in Uganda. The activities were then officially launched in a workshop at Uganda Christian University (UCU) on the 7th of November 2018. Subsequent activities and workshops were held in which the project reached out to many researchers and institutions. This paper, therefore, presents a summary of DAR activities and their spread within the country until December 2018.
