Abstract

The National R&D survey has become a regular feature of South Africa's science and technology landscape. The Survey is conducted annually by the Human Sciences Research Council's Centre for Science, Technology and Innovation Indicators (CeSTII) on behalf of the Department of Science and Technology (DST). The South African R&D Survey collects data under strict conditions of confidentiality from institutions in the country that perform research and experimental development (R&D). The data is then aggregated at sector level and provides essential information for planning at system and institutional level and also provides key indicators of national competitiveness.
