LINKAGES between Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and JIAS were explored at an event at NTU in Singapore on Wednesday 12 April 2016.

Entitled ‘Exploring unique opportunities with JIAS: creating connections between Singapore and South Africa’, the event featured a presentation by Prof Peter Vale, Director of JIAS, during a month-long visit to the NTU.

Prof Vale introduced JIAS and its activities to the NTU community as well as other academics in Singapore. This was followed by an open discussion, and a casual networking dinner.

According to Prof Vale, the purpose of the event was to stimulate brainstorming and facilitate discussions that will help to establish new research agendas to be supported by JIAS.
