During the development of the Waste RDI Roadmap, the CSIR undertook an assessment of waste RDI capabilities across South African Universities and Science Councils. The final report provided a useful summary of the Universities and Science Councils active in various fields of waste RDI, as well as an indication of the level of maturity of the capability.
The assessment has been used by the Waste RDI Roadmap Implementation Unit, as well as other key stakeholders, to further develop and strengthen these nodes of expertise, while also building capability across the national system of innovation (NSI). The capability mapping exercise was repeated in 2017.
