Sir—Last year I attended a meeting where several representatives from the NRF told researchers at Stellenbosch University that all rated researchers would automatically receive ‘glue’ funding in 2009. I was very pleased about this because I had applied for my first NRF rating and had by that stage realised that the transition from Focus Area to Blue Skies funding (the other major pool of funding open to most researchers) was not going to be smooth.
