Met this afternoon with Hina Patel, the Executive Director for the CSIR's Meraka Institute. (I'm an "Entrepreneur-in-Residence" at the CSIR, helping them to commercialise their research).
Hina led the project at the CSIR to create a national ICT R&D map for South Africa, in partnership with the DST (Dept of Science and Technology). The roadmap was recently approved by the South African Cabinet.
The roadmap lays out South Africa's priorities for ICT development and will be the framework for guiding government decisions in this space. It makes for fascinating reading. You can download the roadmap here and read the supporting docs here.
