We have reached an exciting milestone in this year’s programme, with the announcement of eleven finalist teams for GCIP South Africa 2017.
Over the past two weeks, three panels of independent judges had the very difficult task of selecting these Finalists from our 22 outstanding Semi-finalist teams, who will all remain part of the GCIP-SA family going forward. The Finalists will now have two weeks to refine their pitches for the awards event that will take place in Pretoria on 3 November 2017, where they will have the opportunity to present their innovations to the Minister of Science & Technology, Mrs Naledi Pandor, and an audience of around 200 distinguished guests. Congratulations to all – and a very special thank you to our judges, who have volunteered their time to participate in the judging process. Jointly with our mentors, they are key to the success of the programme and its participants.
