South Africa to Host Global Research Infrastructures Forum

The 2016 International Conference on Research Infrastructures (ICRI2016) will “explore the move toward a reinforced cooperation on globally-relevant Research infrastructures” and “discuss concrete steps in that direction”. The event is being organised by the European Commission and South Africa’s Department of Science and Technology. “Research infrastructures are core enablers of competitive research, development and innovation, advancing the frontiers of our knowledge,” the ICRI2016 website says. “They are often, by nature, cross-border and exploitable by multiple disciplines. Research Infrastructures are also highly data intensive, with more and more virtually enabled access, leading the way to global exploitation.” [Image credit: www.ntnu.edu]

Just Launched: Anthology on South Africa’s Agrarian Question

http://l.caast-net-plus.org/ig

Hubert Cochet, Ward Anseeuw and Sandrine Fréguin-Gresh are editors of a new anthology focused on the land issue in South Africa. “This book examines and contributes to the structural questions that underpin the current stagnation of South Africa’s agrarian reform,” according to a statement by publisher HSRC Press. “Presenting fresh approaches in analysing agrarian issues and tools to assess farming systems and agricultural development, this incisive study will be an important resource to policy makers, academics and those with an interest in agrarian reform.” The book was launched at the University of Pretoria in April 2016 and is available for sale online.
