Innovation Support


In its goal to build a research culture at Unisa, the Directorate of Innovation, Technology Transfer and Commercialisation (DITTC) offers student support programmes which provide seed funding and mentoring for innovative research projects to staff or academic associates.

In both cases, preference is given to collaborative or joint research projects that are multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary in nature.

The DITTC has been working hard to entrench innovation and technology transfer as part of the University’s key activities and competencies. The DITTC has been building understanding and awareness of the importance of innovation and technology transfer among staff and students. This continues to be a growing activity with more people beginning to appreciate and understand the importance of these concepts in enhancing the impact that the University’s research and development can have on society.
