  • SOCIAL SCIENCE RESEARCH CHAIRSIn 2009 DST established seven Research Chairs in the Social Sciences. Each Chair will supervise 3 PhD and 5 Masters students per year.The thematic areas for which chairs were awarded were defined by DST taking into consideration government priorities and DSTs 10 Year Innovation Plan, in particular the policy and strategic focus of the Human and Social Dynamics Grand Challenge. This approach to building university research capacity in the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) and international research linkages seeks to enhance the impact, training and knowledge mobilisation objectives of DST.

  • SOCIAL SCIENCE RESEARCH CHAIRS

    The SSH Chairs will play a catalytic role in addressing key development challenges through collaborative research, and mentoring the next generation of scholars and practitioners. This investment will increase SAs capacity to address key public policy issues of social importance and economic prosperity.

  • TOOLKIT FOR INTEGRATED PLANNING (TIP)The Toolkit for Integrated Planning (TIP) is an electronic information platform, developed to provide enhanced information and better evidence as input into spatial analysis and integrated development planning processes, and to support the evaluation of alternative planning decisions. The first phase of the Integrated Planning and Development Modelling (IPDM) project (Phase 1A) focused on the development of a geospatial information platform for a specific study area. The objective of the current Phase 1B of the project is to: Extend the spatial scope of the profiling information to cover the entire country; Make this information accessible to spatial / development planners in all spheres of government via a web-based portal that has been customised to directly address the requirements of users; and Ensure the uptake, use and application of the information and modelling platform through a range of dissemination, technology transfer and capacity building initiatives.

    The technology transfer aspect involves the provision of appropriate agro-processing technology e.g. steam distillation facility and the development of infrastructure at the site e.g. irrigation system; office- and ablutions facilities. This approach ensures that agricultural, technical and business skills and facilities remain in the community even after funding.

    The plan for the DST is to help community establish a minimum 30Ha site (and land to expand), equipped with an industry-sized distillation factory to extract the oils, and a drip irrigation system. The community also receives technology and skills transfer, as well as training and establishment into a commercial enterprise linked to local essential oils market. Plants supported are rose geranium, Buchu, Lippia javanica, and lemon grass, and cold-climate varieties of plants are being piloted.The science of essential oils entails the cultivation and extraction through steam distillation of the volatile aromatic oils from certain herbs. Steam distillation is a special type of distillation that allows the isolation of essential oils from any of the components of a plant, using dry steam, but typically from the leaves and flowers. Steam generated by a boiler is passed through a vessel containing the oil-rich plant material, and the steam removes the oil from the plant material.The odoriferous character of the oil determines its application which can be in perfumery, cosmetics, household fragrances, and food and beverage flavourings and in therapeutic agents. The use of essential oils is high particularly in the fine fragrance and flavour markets. However, the cosmetic, pharmaceutical, and industrial markets are becoming increasingly relevant as demand drivers A mesh network is reliable and offers redundancy. Mesh networks are self-healing, i.e. the network can still operate even when a node breaks down or a connection goes badThe MWN is based on the Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11a/b/g standard) technologyWireless Mesh Network (WMN) technology allows buildings to be linked that are in line of sight of each (even with distances exceeding 7 km), with broadband connectivity (>5 megabits/sec), at very low cost, and without the need for centralised infrastructure such as high masts and base stations. Mesh networks formed by the links are automatically configured to relay information using the connected nodes and to reconfigure the network instantly, in case of any node failingVery large areas can be provided with broadband connectivity using the WMN
