Research Overview

The last five years has seen a marked increase in research publications, a trend that has been driven by the implementation of the University’s long-term strategic plan, UP 2025. In addition, there has been a year-on-year increase in doctoral enrolments and graduates, and in the overall number of graduates with postgraduate qualifications. By December 2022, over 70% of our academic staff held doctoral degrees, which underscores the research and postgraduate training capacity at UP.

Our research achievements are also illustrated in our regional and international standing, and in the growing importance of networks and multi-stakeholder partnerships which drive research impact. By building on areas of research strength, and actively developing networks and partnerships in areas of societal relevance in order to leverage maximum impact, UP has pursued its commitment to using science and innovation for development, and for the well-being of people, society and the environment.
