Indeed it is great news! On the training front it would be great to
carry out outreach into Africa. It would be really great if institutes
such as CGS wanted to set up partnerships and collaborations with
industry and academia here in South Africa - we have plenty of
challenges and scope for interesting collaborative projects.

Please contact me if you are interested in such collaborations!
