The NSTF Awards Gala Dinner, known as the ‘Science Oscars’ is an annual event arranged to recognise and celebrate the finalists, as well as announce the winners. It is a prestige affair gathering the who’s who in science, engineering, technology and innovation in South Africa. The cream of the crop, from lifetime researchers down to the upcoming youth of our society, all gathered under one roof and joined together in celebration. The event is open (public) and the largest of its kind, attended by over 500 guests every year.
The Gala Dinner was held with the Patron, the Minister of Science and Technology, on Thursday, 29 June 2017 in Gauteng.
