The Head of the CoE was nominated and subsequently received an award at the DTI 2011 technology awards held in Polokwane on the 21st of October. The awards ceremony featured 30 other companies, projects and individuals contending for 10 category awards supported by the following DTI’s technology programmes: Support Programme for Industrial Innovation (SPII), Technology and Human Resource for Industry Programme (THRIP), and the Seda Technology Programme (STP).


The DTI also organised a two-day exhibition session, under the theme “Bridging Communities through Innovation” in the Capricorn District Municipality of Limpopo from the 20th to the 21st of October. This allowed the public and over 400 Grade 10 and Grade 11 learners to be exposed to the latest innovations in the field of science and technology. The Fort Hare Telkom Centre of Excellence team had the privilege to be part of the exhibitors, showcasing their flagship multi-disciplinary initiatives, Siyakhula Living Lab and Reed House Systems.
