In issue Number#11 we take immense pleasure in reporting on the conference and release of the final research report of the first of our inaugural eight priority research projects, namely the research project on The Art, Science and Philosophy of South African Football.
We also provide a brief report on a Colloquium to present the preliminary research findings of the MISTRA priority research project entitled: The Concept and Application of Transdisciplinarity., as well as two skaftien sessions on The History of South African Innovations and on Beyond the Imagination, a brown-bag session on bio- and nano-technologies as a part of South Africa’s development plan.
We share a range of media articles on our conference on The Art, Science and Philosophy of South African Football, and an article on daunting challenges faced by this year’s graduating class of matriculants.
We also pay tribute to the late Prof Jakes Gerwel, who served as Vice-Chairperson of MISTRA’s Council of Advisors since it’s establishment in mid-2010.
And we announce, with regret, that MISTRA’s Directorate Operations, Barry Gilder will be relocating abroad and thus leaving the full-time employ of the Institute at the end of January 2013. He will continue to work with the Institute on a contractual part-time basis.
