Could the Western Cape be the setting for South Africa’s first regional powerhouse of a Science and Technology Innovation Park?

This was one of the ideas sparked off by the presentation of Professor Deresh Ramjugernath, DVC: Learning and teaching at Stellenbosch University at USAf’s Executive Leadership Workshop in Stellenbosch last week. Professor Ramjugernath had just spoken on the sub-theme: The entrepreneurial university.

The discussion was led by Dr Poppet Pillay, Director of the Centre for Social Entrepreneurship at the Durban University of Technology (DUT), and former convenor of the EDHE Community of Practice for Entrepreneurial Universities.
