INR Interns Presents at UKZN Postgraduate Research & Innovation Symposium

The University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) hosted their annual Postgraduate Research & Innovation Symposium (PRIS) at their Westville campus on the 25th Of October 2018.

Four of our INR interns, Thembani Nxumalo, Mlungisi Shabalala, Nosipho Makaya and Matthew Dickey, displayed their research posters at the event and attended various oral presentations which were presented by students from the School of Agricultural, Earth & Environmental Sciences (SAEES). A total of 163 students displayed their research posters and 60 students delivered oral presentations for fellow students, UKZN staff, researchers and guests at this popular event. Students also had the opportunity to meet corporate investors from across the globe who showed great interest in some of the ongoing research projects.

The event also included an exhibition where corporate companies and research institutions displayed their products and services. The day ended with a prize giving ceremony and a lucky draw, with one very lucky student going home with a brand new laptop.
