The South African National Research Foundation - NRF

With the TIPC, South Africa’s Science, Technology and Innovation agencies are working towards a just and inclusive society through transforming national policy.

Following the end of apartheid in 1994, STI policy in South Africa has attempted to address the “triple challenge” of poverty, unemployment, and inequality. With a high R&D investment and worldclass research institutions, South Africa has made
some grounds in addressing the Sustainable Development Goals. More recently, a new focus on transformative grassroots innovation and sustainable development has begun to shape policy.

The formulation of the 2017 White Paper for Science, Technology and Innovation provides an opportunity for exploration and experimentation through TIPC to ensure STI policies can become more inclusive with a transformative outcome.
