In 2016, South Africa (through the Department of Science and Technology) and Jamaica (through the Ministry of Science, Energy and Technology) signed an Agreement on Science and Technology cooperation which led to the adoption of a Programme of Activity (PoA) on 17 November 2016. The PoA identifies the NRF and the National Commission on Science and Technology (NCST) as the implementing agencies for this Agreement. Both the NRF and the NCST are hereby pleased to announce this first call for 3-year joint research projects (starting from January 2018 and ending December 2020) in Indigenous Knowledge Systems and Water Research between South African and Jamaican researchers.
All South African applications must be submitted through an online application process to the NRF at https://nrfsubmission.nrf.ac.za. A detailed call document is attached.
Call opens: 20 April 2017
Call closes: 20 June 2017
Please note that applications submitted outside the NRF Submission system will not be accepted.
