SA, Saudi launch research programme

first_img “This is of great importance to both the CSIR and KACST and through our strategic partnership will grow an agile, effective and robust technical capability that contributes to the establishment of knowledge economies.” The programme’s main functions will be to perform research and innovate in the electronic defence field, source and supervise postgraduate students and publish progress in international journals, among others. It will also assist in the creation of new knowledge in a field which is under- subscribed in terms of skills in both countries, according to the CSIR. The University of Pretoria (UP) has pledged its full support and indicated its readiness for the programme. “UP’s School of Engineering is rated to be within the top 1% in the world,” said the dean of engineering, built environment and information technology, Roelf Sandenbergh. The university said its vision is to be a research-intensive, internationally renowned department. “The programme will lead to growth of the technological depth and scope in this research field,” executive director for the CSIR’s operating unit for defence, peace, safety and security, Andre Negen, said at the announcement of the programme at the Africa Aerospace and Defence 2012 exhibition in Pretoria.
