Institutions with units performing Research and Experimental Development (R&D) activities and Innovation-active firms are hereby invited to submit their contact details for inclusion in the National Surveys
The National Commission on Research, Science and Technology (NCRST) was established in accordance with Section 4 of the Research, Science and Technology Act, 2004 (Act 23 of 2004) to provide for the promotion, coordination and development of Research, Science, Technology (RST) in Namibia. NCRST is required by law (section 20, RST Act of 2004) to register research
institutes based in Namibia.
NCRST, together with the Namibia Statistics Agency (NSA), will jointly conduct a National Research and Development (R&D) Survey, as well as a National Innovation Survey. The aim of the survey is to collect data on R&D and innovation activities performed in the country. The NCRST as the mandated authority responsible for the promotion, coordination and development of RSTI in Namibia, is hereby inviting research institutes, public and private institutions of higher learning and business enterprises (SME’s) as well as any organisation/institutions/offices/ministries or agencies (MOAs) conducting research and experimental development or innovation activities, to submit their details in order to be included in the scheduled National Surveys.
NCRST will produce a comprehensive R&D and Innovation indicators report, which can be used for comparison and benchmark with other R&D performers and Innovators in the country and to inform macro-decisions. Information collected during the surveys will be treated as confidential and will be released only in aggregate form, so that individual organizations are not identifiable.
