UKZN RESEARCH HUB

The University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) continues to be one of the premier universities for research and scholarship on the African continent.

FOUR NEW RESEARCH FLAGSHIPS

AIM TO PUT UKZN AT THE CUTTING-EDGE

As part of the strategy to become a truly world-class and cutting-edge research institution, UKZN has established four new Research Flagships to harness the collective strength and wisdom from several diverse disciplines. Rather than working separately in isolated knowledge silos, the aim is to fuse and bring together researchers into four new Flagships that generate high impact research solutions which are globally recognised.

The four new Research Flagships for 2017-2021 are:

  • SOCIAL COHESION – Addressing Inequality and Promoting Nation Building
  • AFRICA HEALTH – Saving Lives
  • BIG DATA and INFORMATICS – Computing Solutions
  • AFRICAN CITIES OF THE FUTURE – Most Livable Cities.
