South Africa’s innovation revolution must assist in solving our society’s deep and pressing socio-economic challenges. Global competitiveness, shrinking resource availability, and the requirements of a skilled labour force mean that, increasingly, an awareness and understanding of why science and research are critical to our lives is essential for developing an innovation culture.
Within the next five years, the aim is to begin to more fully embed engagement in and with science in the core NRF missions of supporting and promoting new knowledge and growing new knowledge workers. This is led by the formulation of an acceptable NRF position on engaged research which will guide the NRF approach…
NRF | SAASTA is the NRF business division tasked with leading and coordinating the science engagement programme across the NRF and beyond. The NRF is equally committed to ensuring that the science engagement leadership and national coordination role…
The NRF provides leading-edge research infrastructure platforms that ensure that the national research enterprise has the requisite infrastructure to undertake globally competitive discovery science, train the next generation of researchers, support engagement with science by and with the public and promote innovation that positively impacts society, the environment, the economy.
The annual NRF Awards recognize and celebrate South African research excellence. The awards presented to researchers are in two categories, the ratings linked awards and special recognition awards.
The National Research Foundation (NRF) conducts its procurement of goods, services, and works in accordance with its Supply Chain Management Policy in a manner that is fair, equitable, transparent, competitive, and cost-effective

The National Research Foundation bid awards and contracts. Below is the latest award.
We want to make analysis easier for everyone working in science and medicine. Growing from our roots in publishing, we help you manage work efficiently, so you can spend more time making breakthroughs.
Lead the way in advancing science, technology and health.
We help institutions and professionals advance healthcare, open science and improve performance for the benefit of humanity. Combining content with technology, supported by operational efficiency, we turn information into actionable knowledge. Elsevier empowers knowledge which empowers those who use it.
Technological advancement and the data revolution have pushed the boundaries of science and medicine.
Discoveries unimaginable a generation ago are uncovered every day. At Elsevier, we recognize the potential for scientists and clinicians to find new answers, reshape human knowledge and tackle the most urgent global crises.
We want to make analysis easier for everyone working in science and medicine, enabling them to manage their work more efficiently and spend more time making breakthroughs. That's why Elsevier is evolving. Growing from our roots in publishing, we're creating analytical solutions to serve the needs of science and health.
Every tool we develop is built on trusted information.
At Elsevier, we have partnered with the scholarly community for 140 years to curate and verify knowledge. Now, as an information analytics business, we’re committed to bringing that rigor to a new generation of Elsevier platforms – especially at a time when it’s harder than ever to know what to believe.
As well as enriching science, the proliferation of data brings new challenges for those striving for progress. Vast volumes of information are hard to navigate and organize, increasing the risk of critical data being overlooked.
It’s tougher to ensure the credibility of data. Research and healthcare are more complex when incorporating findings from multiple disciplines. In the globalized academic community, there is more competition than ever for jobs, students and funding.
Elsevier provides information analytics solutions and digital tools in the areas of strategic research management, R&D performance, clinical decision support, and professional education.
Throughout Elsevier, we share the research community's belief in what science can achieve.
Many of our people began their careers in science or medicine, and we work with a worldwide network of editors, authors and specialists, covering hundreds of disciplines.
Elsevier believes in making every part of the research lifecycle simpler, more connected and more transparent.
As technology and data bring further change, there will be an even greater need to look at how the system that supports science can be improved. We are determined to lead the way and work with the community to develop solutions that achieve this mission.
Ultimately, enhancing the system that underpins science and medicine will help researchers and clinicians solve the 21st century's most challenging problems.
