Prof. J.D Bakibinga appointed to the SA-EU Science Dialogue Steering Committee

The appointment for Prof.  J.D Bakibinga to the committee was based on his expertise in the area of open science/ open data.
The dialogue is expected to come up with a framework suggesting possible interventions and setting up principles and guidelines that would be necessary for the institutionalization of a South African Open Science Policy.
The role of the steering committee will be to guide and approve the work of an expert task team responsible for structuring the dialogue and developing the open science policy framework. 
The DST will be leading the project together with the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf) in partnership with the European Commission .
