Background

In 2022, Stellenbosch University and the University of Warwick signed an agreement with the aim of combining expertise and engaging in collaborative activities. One of the aims of the agreement is to support collaboration between the two universities. This talk will showcase Stellenbosch's research and innovation, and give an overview of the collaboration opportunities available for Warwick staff.

The new Stellenbosch-Warwick Joint Seed Fund will aim to strengthen or initiate exchange between Stellenbosch and Warwick academics and professional services staff by enabling them to jointly undertake preliminary research and education projects, and organise meetings, conferences or workshops. The Seed Fund will be launched at this event by Professor Moyo and Professor Stuart Croft, Vice Chancellor of the University of Warwick.
