This series of publications is the result of research conducted at the Centre for Research on Science and Technology (CREST) at Stellenbosch University. Volume 4. Abstracts of the fifteen case studies are presented below in the order that they appear in this volume. In addition, selected features of each of the case studies, such as the scientific domain(s) or discipline(s) within which each research project, programme or unit is located, and the primary mode of utilisation, are included in the summaries. All but two of the case studies focus on a project, programme or research centre/unit that is based in a university or a technikon. The two exceptions include cases based within the Agricultural Research Council and the Medical Research Council, since these emerged as interesting cases during the selection process.
