Young CSIR scientists use scientific knowledge to shape SA knowledge economy

The scientific research work of eight young scientists was acknowledged at the recently held 7th Emerging Researchers Symposium (ERS), hosted by the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). These young scientists were selected to battle it out for the best innovative research solutions to the challenges faced by society. 

The event, which was hosted under the theme “Innovation in Entrepreneurship”, provided 39 young researchers with the platform to demonstrate how their scientific research responds to the needs of industry, small and medium enterprises, and underserved communities, through oral and poster presentations.
