SA and Japan celebrate 10 years of science and technology cooperation

On Tuesday, 29 July 2014, South Africa and Japan celebrated 10 years of successful science and technology cooperation. The two countries have enjoyed cordial relations since signing a bilateral science and technology cooperation agreement in 2003.

The National Research Foundation is the agency responsible for promoting this collaboration on behalf of South Africa's Department of Science and Technology (DST), while the Japan Science and Technology Agency and the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science manage the partnership on behalf of Japan. This decade-long relationship has seen over R85 million invested in about 50 joint research and development projects in the areas of life sciences, climate change, astronomy and space science, and human capital development, among others.
