SARIMA Conference: Research and Innovation Management for Impact

Learn how to overcome the challenges of research environments

The research environment is not only important but also extremely competitive. There are many challenges that researchers – along with entrepreneurs – face to get excellent outcomes. Every step needs to be well achieved: writing research reports, translating them into policies & practice, and finally generating research and innovation that impacts society in a positive way.

It is essential for research managers to ensure that the research outputs and outcomes of the organization are optimal, and lead to quantifiable impact. Thus, North-West University (NWU), Southern African Research & Innovation Management Association (SARIMA) and WAITRO organize the event “Monitoring Research Performance and Impact”. This Conference will take place on August 1st from 09h00 – 15h30, South Africa Standard Time.
