2018 will be remembered as a year of many research and innovation highlights for the North-West University (NWU).
It is important for the North-West University (NWU) to focus on critical community challenges in research – this makes research more relevant and useful to the community.
Crammed into tiny rooms in same-sex hostels, away from their partners or families and without proper access to water, electricity or sanitation, South African miners used to live in appalling conditions. Today, the situation of miners at Impala Platinum in Rustenburg has improved markedly, although there are still challenges, as a North-West University (NWU) research study shows.
Water is vital for living organisms but the quality of water is changing due to population growth and environmental changes. Could a miracle plant be the answer?
The future of the planet may not be as gloomy as many predict. A North-West University (NWU) researcher is doing her part to groom a new generation of eco-warriors armed with the knowledge and commitment to combat water scarcity and other challenges linked to climate change.
Internationalisation is a top strategic priority for the North-West University (NWU). This practice not only improves quality of education, but also enhances knowledge transformation and acquisition, the mobilisation of talent in support of global research and the enhancement of the curriculum with international content.
