Partnership opportunities with Stellenbosch University

Stellenbosch University Partnership Page Banner

In Stellenbosch, business and higher education share an interest in the town becoming a place where intellectual capital is transformed into economic capital with a view to changing the world.

There is business value in intellectual research when companies can tap into the resources of the university to explore relevant topics. The university has the material, human and institutional resources to explore real, current and future business problems.

The Technopark SRA and Stellenbosch University wish to promote the building of mutually-beneficial partnerships between the University and businesses in Stellenbosch. This page is dedicated to offering up-to-date information to the Techno Park community regarding events, activities and opportunities at the University.
