This list will be updated regularly based on the information available to us.
A key component of the foundation of a strong dynamic National System of Innovation (NSI) is the availability of physical infrastructure. Physical infrastructure includes research equipment and facilities in general. Often highly skilled Namibian scientists and technicians have moved out of their areas of competence or training into administrative or management positions mainly because lack of availability research facilities and equipment or the lack of availability information on the availability of research equipment and facilities in the country. The existing limited research facilities are not adequately utilized because they are not shared or are easily accessible by researchers. This platform will allow us to capture information on the availability of research equipment and facilities in the country. This will ensure that we are able to make such information available to researcher and innovators and to encourage sharing and usage of local research equipment and facilities. There is financial remittance to those who will make available their research equipment and facilities to a wider community by charging for their usage.
