AS and EU look forward to science partnership

According to the South African Ministry of Science and Technology, South Africa and the European Union (EU) will discuss further opportunities for partnerships in science, technology and innovation.
Future opportunities would be further discussed when EU commissioner for research, innovation, and science Maire Geoghegan-Quinn visits South Africa in November as part of a series of events celebrating 15 years of the SA-EU science and technology agreement.
The EU has provided €30-million between 2007 and 2013 to South Africa’s DST to supplement its budget aimed at using science and technology for poverty relief.
Speaking at the EU summit in Brussels last week, President Jacob Zuma took the occasion to recall  that South African science system made an important contribution to global science and technology initiatives from particle physics to exploring Mars. “In addition, South Africa is globally recognised for its groundbreaking efforts in using science and technology for the key challenges of our time including, food security, climate change, health, and poverty alleviation”, he said.
