NSTF award for Jolanda Roux
Last night the prestigious NSTF-BHP Billiton Science and Technology Awards ceremony
was held in Johannesburg. Jolanda Roux from FABI won the award for
Capacity Building in Science Engineering and Technology Innovation
during the last 5-10 years. This is a great accomplishment - very much
deserved and also a great credit and honour to FABI and the TPCP.
The TPCP was also a finalist in the category for an Individual or a Team for an outstanding contribution to SETI through Research leading to Innovation -
but did not win. We can't win all the awards and the winning team (a
team award) was to a remarkable group that have made huge inroads into
treating breast cancer.... they really deserve this award and the TPCP
team with its many facets was happy to be amongst the list of very
CONGRATULATIONS TO JOLANDA and CONGRATULATIONS TO FABI and the TPCP!!!
