SAIAB News » DST Minister and DG visit Water World at SAIAB during Scifest Africa 2018

A very special space evolves each year at NRF-SAIAB's pop-up science centre Water World at Scifest Africa.

2018 was made extra special as we had the honour this year to be visited by the newly appointed Minister of the Department of Science and Technology, Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane, and the Deputy General, Dr Phil Mjwara.

As an Embedded NUCLEUS of the EU-funded NUCLEUS Project, of which NRF-SAASTA is a consortium partner, Water World provides an amazing platform for NRF-SAIAB and other organisations involved in aquatic biodiversity research which otherwise may not be in a position to attend Scifest Africa, to engage with civil society.
