The Directorate Research Development launched the University of the Free State’s (UFS) 2009 Research Report in August 2010. Prof. Frans Swanepoel, Director: Research Development, highlighted progress, future research development direction and several exceptional institutional research achievements, with special focus on the women researchers who are changing the face of research excellence at the UFS. Prof. Jonathan Jansen, Vice-Chancellor and Rector of the UFS, emphasised outstanding research performance as a fundamental element to the vision of the UFS and introduced Prof. Maresi Nerad, founding Director of the Centre for Innovation and Research in Graduate Education (CIRGE) and Associate Professor for Higher Education in the Educational Leadership and Policy Studies Programme at the College of Education at the University of Washington, Seattle, USA, as keynote speaker at the event. Prof. Nerad argued for a “global-village approach” to doctoral education, calling for a coordinated effort at many levels of higher education and beyond in supporting and developing our young researchers.
