Tuks Young Research Leader Programme

The Tuks Young Research Leader Programme (TYRLP) is an initiative of Future Africa and the University of Pretoria (UP) and aims to grow early career academics at UP in the areas of thought leadership, team development, engagement and collaboration, with the intention of enabling them to solve the complex issues that face society. The programme aims to form a community within the University of the like-minded young researchers who possess qualities that will contribute to UP becoming and leading as a research intensive University.
