DST-NRF CIMERA held an informal office warming function at 11 am on Monday 3 August 2013. The offices are on the 3rd floor of C1 Lab at the University of Johannesburg (UJ). The refurbishment of the former Department of Geology lecture rooms was financed by UJ as part of their support of our Centre of Excellence (CoE), the first to be hosted at UJ. DST-NRF CIMERA greatly appreciates this support and will carry out our mandate as a prestigious CoE for the benefit of the country.
Prof Nic Beukes, Director, and Prof Judith Kinnaird, Co-Director, of DST-NRF CIMERA warmly welcomed all to the new offices, and wished that with the co-operation and excellent output from all our collaborators, our CoE will have a successful future. They thanked all the stakeholders who had participated in the establishment of our CoE, and toasted to a future of impactful research to be conducted under the DST-NRF umbrella.
