South Africa: United States and Country Break New Ground in Science Cooperation

Abstract:
The United States and South Africa held the first meeting of the Joint Commission on Science and Technology under the U.S.-South Africa Science and Technology Cooperation Agreement February 24-29, in Massachusetts and Washington, DC, organized by the U.S. Department of State. Among dozens of new collaborations, we agreed to establish geospatial and earth observation joint working groups focusing on global change, sustainable development, energy, and health. A separate energy efficiency and renewable energy group will be formed to translate applied research to solving energy problems, and a health group will be formed to seek new collaborations in health sciences and biotechnology and to refocus anew on chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and malnutrition. The South African agriculture biotechnology experts agreed to establish a partnership with the State of Massachusetts and exchange models and technologies and cooperate to develop human capital.
