Student Paper Evening 

Following on two successful Student Paper evenings in 2017 and 2018, SANEA and DBREV are again presenting this joint meeting Student Paper Evening.

The students are all postgraduate students at various tertiary education institutions in the Western Cape. They have been asked to focus their 10 minute presentations on the impacts and outcomes of the research i.e. ‘how will my research change the world’ rather than just providing a general overview of the research.

In keeping with the emphasis on Youth for this evening, the UCT Toastmasters’ Club have agreed to run the evening, so it will be different from the usual SANEA meetings.

Come along and support the Youth and ENJOY the evening.
