NSTF Awards 2016/17: Call for nominations

The National Science and Technology Forum (NSTF) is the largest, most prominent, multi-stakeholder, non-profit forum for science, engineering, technology and innovation (SETI) in South Africa, promoting science-related activities through collaborative effort. The NSTF Awards is the flagship project of the NSTF, which creates a platform to showcase research and development capacity of South Africa by awarding and recognising scientists, engineers and other professionals.

In 2015/16, a CSIR process was initiated to consolidate and institutionalise the NSTF awards nomination process. The outcome of this coordinated effort saw the highest number of CSIR nominations and finalists ever; a total of twelve CSIR staff nominations in seven award categories, resulted in nine CSIR finalists in five categories and four winners.

The call for 2016/17 NSTF awards nominations is now open. There are currently 12 categories in which individuals or organisations can be nominated. Nominations in the relevant NSTF categories will be sourced from the 2016 CSIR Excellence Awards nominees, finalists and winners.

All operating units/centres/portfolios are also invited to submit nominations of qualifying staff to the R&D office (R&D@csir.co.za ) by Monday, 5 December 2016.
