ASSAf Workshop: Research, Development and Innovation on Peaceful Uses of Nuclear Technologies in South Africa
3 May @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
As a stakeholder in the field of nuclear technologies, the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf) would like to invite you to participate in a workshop on research, development and innovation (RDI) on nuclear technologies in South Africa. We would like your input and feedback on the preliminary findings of one of our ongoing studies.
ASSAf has been commissioned to undertake an evaluation of RDI of peaceful uses of nuclear technologies in South Africa. The study was initiated by the Department of Science and Innovation (DSI) and is being administered by the South African National Energy Development Institute (SANEDI) as the Energy Secretariat established by the DSI. SANEDI is an entity of the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy (DMRE) which hosts the National Liaison Office.
The ASSAf study will assist in supporting the high-level agreement between South Africa and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) by providing a solid foundation upon which to draft a national strategic framework on RDI on peaceful uses of nuclear technologies in South Africa.
The study is following the methodology of a consensus study which relies on a panel of experts to provide the intellect, expertise and relevant information, coordinated and managed by the ASSAf secretariat.
During this workshop the panel, chaired by Prof Machaba (Mike) Sathekge of the University of Pretoria, will present on the information collated towards the evaluation followed by some high-level findings.
The intention is to verify the information and to test the high-level findings with the relevant national stakeholders and role players across all sectors.
Delegate attendance will be virtual using the Zoom platform.
