This series of publications is the result of research conducted at the Centre for Research on Science and Technology (CREST) at Stellenbosch University. Volume 2.
Volume 2. The focus in the project is on the R&D function of higher education institutions; on the knowledge produced by scientists and scholars at these institutions. In terms of this focus, the overarching aim of the proposed project is to analyse and assess to what extent South African universities and technikons are engaged in a transformative agenda in the production and utilisation of scientific knowledge. Two major research questions will drive the project: - To what extent has the production of scientific knowledge at SA universities and technikons changed over the past seven years? - To what extent is the knowledge produced at SA universities and technikons used, particularly in the interest of new national goals?
