The Board of Trustees of the Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund) in the implementation of its mandate to establish and nurture Higher Education Book Development Culture has set up a Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to execute the Mission.

(vi) Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science
(vii) Life Sciences
