Prof. Driekie Hay, Vice-Rector: Academic Planning at the University of the Free State (UFS), has been appointed as SANPAD facilitator for its Research Capacity Building Initiative (RCI). SANPAD (South Africa-Netherlands Research Programme on Alternatives in Development) is a unique collaborative research programme that has been financed by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs since 1997, says Prof. Frans Swanepoel, Director: Research Development at the UFS.

SANPAD funds high quality, collaborative research by South African researchers in association with Dutch researchers.

SANPAD has established a capacity development programme, the RCI, to build the knowledge of research methodology of a selection of junior researchers.

The RCI is aimed at producing reflective academics
• who have a broad insight into theories, ideas, methods and practices in research in the social sciences,
• who are capable of making informed choices among these, and of further developing their knowledge and expertise in their chosen fields,
• who are capable of bringing a research project to a successful conclusion within a specified time frame and budget,
• who are capable of writing up their results as academic articles worthy of publication in reputable journals, and
• who are capable also of disseminating their results less conventionally among those who can best make practical use of them.
