Building knowledge through research

Building knowledge through research

Research and innovation is a team effort

Unisa is serious about research and innovation, and that means providing serious support to researchers and innovators, whether they are only just starting out, are already making a name for themselves nationally or are well-established scholars with international networks and influence. There are currently 225 researchers rated by the National Research Foundation (NRF) and the number is growing steadily.

The team responsible for building and strengthening the university’s research community is the Research, Innovation, Graduate Studies and Commercialisation portfolio. It consists of the Research, Innovation and Commercialisation Department, College of Graduate Studies, Unisa Press and the Unisa Library.

The institution’s College of Graduate Studies provides a virtual research platform for postgraduate students in all colleges, thus promoting both interdisciplinary and research excellence.

Through its research activities the university contributes to the knowledge and information society, advances development, nurtures a critical citizenry and ensures sustainability.
