26 February 2009
Bridgette Radebe, vice-chairperson of the Minerals and Mining Development Board, led a high-level delegation on a visit to UCT's Africa Earth Observatory Network (AEON) this month. The delegation, which was welcomed by Vice-Chancellor Dr Max Price and AEON science director, Professor Maarten de Wit, comprised a group who attended a mining indaba in Cape Town, and had an interest in striking a partnership with AEON. The network is an inter-institutional and interdisciplinary group that aims to cultivate a high-level, internationally connected research environment promoting a modern, interdisciplinary systems view of earth.
