This is the official app for the Science Forum South Africa and Innovation Bridge Technology Showcasing and Matchmaking event hosted by the Department of Science and Innovation. The event will take place during 4 – 6 December 2019 at the CSIR International Convention Centre.
Taking place under the theme "Igniting conversations about science for innovation with impact", this collaboration will create a unique platform for debate on the role of science, technology and innovation in society. At the same time, local technologies generated from publicly financed research and development will be showcased with the aim of securing partners to convert these technologies into products and services that impact on the lives of ordinary people.

And on 6 December, the collaboration of Science Forum South Africa and Innovation
Bridge will culminate in the closing plenary, where a high-level panel will discuss the role of innovation in society from the perspective of driving local technological advancements while ensuring increased foreign direct investment.
