UCT scientists shine
at NRF awards
There have been two annual National Research Foundation
(NRF) Awards since the publication of the 2017/18 Research
and Innovation Highlights. These awards, which recognise and
celebrate South African research excellence, are presented in two
categories: ratings-linked awards and special recognition awards.
Here we recognise those UCT researchers from both years that
we haven’t yet celebrated.
