The CSIR has taken a strategic decision to reposition its innovation portfolio to make a direct contribution to industrial development.

The CSIR is committed to supporting small, medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs). In this edition of ScienceScope, the different aspects of the CSIR's support to SMMEs are outlined.

The CSIR's strength lies in the quality of scientists, researchers and support staff it attracts, the opportunities it creates for career development, its commitment to excellence and working together to create a better future through science.
