The IRD-CNRS-CIRAD Joint Office in South Africa has a strategic partnership with the Cultural & Cooperation Service of the French Embassy (SCAC). With a particular focus on collaborative research and capacity building, together we drive our coordinated actions in ST&I cooperation with South Africa and the region.
We will showcase our three research institutes profiles in ST&I cooperation, instruments, on-going projects & programmes, and new partnership opportunities. The French Embassy flagship Master and PhD bursary program and ground-breaking research activities with South Africa such as the F’SATI, the F’SAGRI and IFAS-Research should be also set out. Several brochures, posters and banners will be displayed.
This exhibition will serve as a platform to point out France and South African ST&I cooperation.
This exhibition will serve as a platform to showcase our main collaborative research programs in the following fields: health and environment, agronomy, earth and planetary sciences, marine sciences, paleosciences, physics and chemistry. Dissemination material such as IRD, CNRS and reports should be displayed and documentaries would be screened.
Finally, a quiz will be proposed on some of the key scientific questions of 2018.
