Invitation to Crowdfunding Workshop - 30 August 2019

Given the current challenge that UP faces relating to reduced funding, especially from the main research funding agency, the National Research Foundation (NRF), the University needs to look beyond traditional sources of funding and to come up with new innovative ways of doing more with less. Therefore, funding sources such as crowdfunding become a very helpful tool for supporting innovative research.

The Department of Research and Innovation at the University of Pretoria would therefore like to invite you to the first Crowdfunding Workshop.

Date: 30 August 2019

Time: 08h:00 – 12:h00

Venue: Plant Science Auditorium
