Prof Tshilidzi Marwala unveiling the Joint Research Centre with the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology delegation
THE CENTRE IS FUNDED THROUGH THE TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION AGENCY (TIA) AND WILL FACILITATE COLLABORATION INTERNALLY BETWEEN THE FACULTY OF SCIENCE AND THE FACULTY OF ENGINEERING AND THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT.
This JRC will focus on the water- energy research-innovation nexus with projects advancing fundamental science, engineering and technology for impact. A key example being the use of membrane technology – a key strength of both universities –
The South African Department of Science and Innovation and the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology have got together to form a Joint Research Centre (JRC). The launch event took place on 23 August 2019 at the University of Johannesburg (UJ) Auckland Park Library. The JRC – Chemical and Environmental Engineering – is co- hosted by the State Key Laboratory of Materials-Oriented Chemical Engineering at NanjingTech, UJ’s Process, Energy and Environmental Technology Station, and the Faculty of Engineering and the Built Environment (FEBE) at UJ. There are a number of JRCs in the pipeline.
for water treatment. Given UJ’s strategic contextualisation within the
Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), the approach is shaped in this way. This important engagement was facilitated by the University
