CSIR recognises researchers’ years of hard work

The number of principal and chief researchers promoted by the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) this year is an important key performance indicator for the council, indicating the strength of its research development and innovation capacity, as well as its transformed human capital, to deliver on its mandate.

One of the highly distinguished research organisations in Africa, the CSIR recognised the promotion of seven chief researchers and 28 principal researchers during a function held at its International Convention Centre in Pretoria in November this year.

The work undertaken by the CSIR aids the development of transformative technologies to accelerate socioeconomic prosperity in South Africa.
