The clients of CREEC are very diverse: national and local government, donor organizations, NGOs, private sector and students
CREEC has an active cooperation with Weltwaerts, a volunteer service of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development that places young people (age 18-28) in organizations in developing countries to gain experience and share knowledge abroad. Three young Germans have been able to get experience working in Uganda with CREEC so far. Furthermore, CREEC has hosted students from the USA, Czech Republic, the Netherlands and Germany under sponsorships, research grants and exchange programs. The centre almost continuously hosts students from Makerere University and other educational institutions for their internships, industrial trainings or final-year projects.
The centre enjoys strong support and increasing recognition from both international (African, Asian and European universities and research institutions, GIZ, Global Alliance for Clean Cooking, UNIDO, UNDP, World Bank and WWF) and national (College of Engineering, Design, Art and Technology, Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development, Private Sector Foundation Uganda, various local NGOs and private sector businesses) organizations.
