On Friday the 22nd April 2016, DST-NRF CIMERA celebrated the second anniversary of its launch (on the 24th April 2014) in the Tea Room of the Department of Geology at the University of Johannesburg.

Colleagues from the University of the Witwatersrand, our Centre of Excellence’s Co-Host, and other guests joined us for refreshments and networking. Professor Judith Kinnaird and Professor Nic Beukes made short speeches, thanking one and all for their contributions in making our CoE a successful enterprise so far. We will continue with our research activities, and look forward to our next few anniversaries with hope and pride!
