Individual Researchers & Related Activities Awards
Awards for individuals for any field of activity relating to research and its outputs in four categories. These are all made to individuals based in South Africa, and who are South Africans or permanent residents. The individual must have made an outstanding contribution to SET in South Africa in any field of activity relating to research and its outputs. This could include related SET and innovation management activities necessary for the successful development and diffusion of new or improved products/services.
In most cases the period of research would commence with the attainment of a PhD but can also be considered to have started with the research towards that degree.
Completion of a PhD degree is however not of itself a pre-requisite for a nomination for these awards but is intended to provide a benchmark for the assessment. Should there be extraordinary circumstances in the assessment of the appropriate period, the form provides for a suitable motivation in this regard to be provided.
