DIPLOMACY AWARD for F'SATI
During the closing ceremony of the Science Forum South Africa 2016 that took place in December the F'SATI had the honour to receive the Diplomacy Award as an international STI partnership which has made an outstanding contribution to human capital development (especially for young and women scientists) in South Africa.
Ms Naledi Pandor, Minister of Science and Technology, presented the award to the F'SATI representatives from France and South Africa.
This recognition of 20 years of collaboration for human capital development in science and technology is also an incentive to continue and extend the cooperation with other institutions, giving opportunities to develop their postgraduate careers to more South Africans students.
F'SATI thanks the Minister for this recognition that the collaboration has succeeded in its objective and all the partners, Professors, students and alumni for their involvement in the institute.
