We seek to develop new inter-, trans- and multidisciplinary technologies in education, science, engineering, digital arts and game design, media innovation and digital journalism, among other endeavours.
We understand the interconnections between infectious and communicable diseases, bioinformatics and molecular biosciences, and the future of precision medicine and genetics. This places us in good stead to lead health innovation in the country.
By exploring new ideas across a range of disciplines, we aim to address future challenges at the intersection of sustainable development and digital innovation. Our ambition is to understand how these new developments will impact people’s lives.
We are seeking support for the funding of the Wits Central Archive, which includes the Historical Papers Research Archive, one of the largest and most comprehensive independent archives in southern Africa.
Wits is establishing an ecosystem to drive research-led innovation that will solve some of Africa’s greatest challenges in sectors such as health, urbanisation, education, environmental protection and food security.
