DEPARTMENT OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY (DST)

DEPARTMENT OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY (DST)

The DST strives toward introducing measures that put science and technology to work to make an impact on growth and development in a sustainable manner in areas that matter to all the people of South Africa. This includes focused interventions, networking and acting as a catalyst for change in terms of both productive components of our economy, making it competitive in a globally competitive liberalised environment, and also in respect of the huge development backlog existing among the poorest components of our society. The goal of realising this vision is underpinned by development and resourcing strategies for the formation of science, engineering and technology, human capital, democratisation of state and society, promotion of an information society and ensuring environmental sustainability in development programmes.
