Strategic Intent:

To be within reach of every SME in the country through its Technology Transfer and related activities at Universities.

Moral Purpose

To do what is right:

The efficient and effective usage and deployment of public funds.

To do what is worthwhile:

Providing world class technology solutions and training to SME’s to enhance economic growth in South Africa.

  • Envisaged Outcomes for Business Plan

  • Increase the number and quality of SME’s assisted through referrals and linkages with other Agencies and Government Programmes.

  • Enhanced alignment with DST’s ten year Innovation Plan.

  • Enhanced Human Resource Development with specific emphasis on Internship Programme and Student involvement

  • Continuous Improvement to mitigate Structural Inefficiencies within the Trust.

Why SME’s??

  • SME’s generally have higher growth tendencies (sales, turnover, jobs) than larger firms

  • SME’s accounts for a disproportion number of gross jobs created

  • Benefit of Economics of Scope rather than Economics of Scale – nimble and shielded from Exogenous shocks

  • Tends to be more Innovation intensive than large firms

Technology Stations Programme


  • Technology Stations and Their Scope

Agro Processing and Chemical Cluster

  • To Support the Chemicals and the Agro-Processing Industry.

  • Formulations, Pharmaceutical and the Natural/Indigenous Products, Detergent & Paint .

  • Testing and analysis in manufacturing low-end products.

Primary Manufacturing Cluster

  • The secondary manufacturing cluster focuses on advanced manufacturing and value adding services within three critical industrialized sectors

  • Specialises focus is in product development and prototyping

  • Application of Smart materials, textiles and reverse engineering

Secondary Manufacturing Cluster

  • This is a support cluster , with service of system automation and processing of materials.

  • Material compositions and casting (foundry) solutions.
