CST-SA Meet & Greet event with Industry 10 September 2019
This Meet & Greet was the first industry “match-making event” hosted by CST-SA and proved to be a very successful item on the industry calendar. Our sponsors for the evening were the South African Cultivar & Technology Agency (SACTA), The Maize Trust, The Sorghum Trust and the Sasol Agriculture Trust.
Highlights of the Meet & Greet evening were:
- The event brought together 34 students – a critical mass of young cereal researchers with scarce skills, from all over the country;
- The students are mainly recipients of bursaries supported by the Maize Trust, Sasol Agriculture Trust, SA Cultivar and Technology Agency, the Sorghum Trust, FoodBev SETA, SANSOR and several others such as the NRF;
- The students represent more than 10 tertiary education institutions (Universities and Technikons).
