The Trajectory of Technological Innovations after Research and Development
5 December 2023
CSIR International Convention Centre, Pretoria
2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
The Mapungubwe Institute for Strategic Reflection (MISTRA) invites you to a side event at the upcoming Science Forum South Africa 2023 on ‘The Trajectory of Technological Innovations after Research and Development’.
South Africa has made significant strides in science and technology, crafting policies to spur economic and social development. Yet the transition from promising research to viable commercial ventures remains a hurdle, with world-class projects often not achieving their market potential. This does not only slow down economic growth and job creation but also impacts on South Africa’s goal of becoming a competitive hub for innovation. Please join us and contribute to this important conversation as we explore how we can collectively foster an environment in which innovation thrives and translates into economic and social benefits.
