UK seeks to build closer scientific and innovation cooperation with SA
August 8, 2014 Editor 0
The United Kingdom wants to build long-term relationships with South Africa in the fields of science, technology and engineering, and has assigned funds to support this desire. “The UK is interested in investing in cooperation with South Africa,” reports British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) Chief Scientific Adviser Professor Robin Grimes. “We’ve recently announced the creation of our Newton Fund, to finance scientific cooperation with selected countries; £4-million [more than R70-million] a year for the next five years [giving a total of £20-million or R350-million] has been allocated just for cooperation with South Africa, although there is hope that some of the South Africa funding will be used for projects in third countries in Africa.”
