Framework Six Programme

Framework Six Programme (EU Research Area)

Participation in the EU‘s Framework Programme Six (FP6) is greatly encouraged and financially supported by the Department of Science and Technology. That means that a FP6 Project consortium can invite a South African group for no extra cost to the project. The South African group’s contribution will be for free.


History of SANi

SANi was initiated through the initiative of some members of the science community with an interest in nanotechnology.

The call for participation and promise of support, by the Department of Science and Technology (DST), in the European Community Framework Programme 6 offered the opportunity for the first meeting of interested parties, called by Dr Malik Maaza and Dr Phil Mjwara, on 14 May 2002 at the University of the Witwatersrand. From this day SANi has evolved into an initiative that spans South Africa. An interim committee organised a one day workshop which was held on 25 October 2002. At this workshop SANi’s first committee was elected.

SANi Executive Committee

SANi is managed by a committee elected at its annual general meeting. The portfolios in the committee are: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, International affairs, Research.
