Winners named for Canada-South Africa chairs initiative

The winners of two multinational, multi-person research chairs have been announced by the International Development Research Centre in Canada and South Africa’s National Research Foundation.

These “trilateral” chairs are worth up to CA$1 million each over five years and aim to boost research and training collaboration between South Africa, Canada and a third African country.

The first chair will be held jointly by three researchers: Tebello Nyokong at Rhodes University in South Africa, Juan Scaiano at the University of Ottawa in Canada, and Edith Amuhaya of United States International University in Kenya. Together, they will explore the use of nanotechnology in solving environmental problems.
