Minister Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane unveils a new White Paper for Science and Technology
In March the Cabinet approved the new White Paper on Science, Technology and Innovation (STI). This new roadmap, according to the Department of Science and Technology (DST), identifies the fourth industrial revolution as a key focus, placing STI at the centre of the country’s development agenda.
Last September, DST put out the draft policy document for public comment, noting it sets out a long-term direction for government to ensure a growing role for science, tech and innovation. This replaces the 1996 White Paper on Science and Technology, and aligns with the objectives of government’s National Development Plan.
