This is in recognition of the massive untapped potential of research work (related to economic development) generated each year by emerging scholars and postgraduate students.  

The Department has together with the partnering universities undertaken to engage this group with the view to harnessing this potential.

Other partnering universities are the University of Fort Hare, Rhodes University and Walter Sisulu University.

Please find attached an invitation and registration form for the conference and once you have filled in the form please send it to the email address provided on the invite.

Guided by a vision of an Eastern Cape where economic growth and sound environmental management underpin sustainable development, DEDEAT’s mandate is to lead economic development and environmental management in the province.
