The University of Cape Town (UCT) has done it again. Twelve of its academics and one university partnership have been selected as finalists in multiple categories for the 2022/2023 NSTF-South32 Awards – testament to their groundbreaking work in the fields of science, engineering and technology (SET) both nationally and abroad.
The National Science and Technology Forum (NSTF) Awards are the largest and most prestigious SET research awards in South Africa and are held annually in partnership with mining and metals company South32. The awards celebrate the work of esteemed scientists advancing the sustainable socio-economic growth of the nation and improving the quality of life for all South Africans.
Being selected as a finalist for South Africa’s “Science Oscars” is no mean feat considering the pool of extraordinarily talented scientists and the number of nominations the NSTF receives every year.
This year’s winners will be announced at an awards ceremony taking place on 13 July, under the banner: “Ocean sciences for sustainable development” in response to the United Nations’ decade-long theme, Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.
