Science, Education, Research and Innovation

What we do and who we are

The Desk for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) at the Swiss Embassy in Pretoria aims to strengthen scientific and technological cooperation between Switzerland and South Africa. One of the initiatives to achieve that objective was the establishment of the Swiss South Africa Joint Research Programme (SSAJRP). The Office is also responsible for contacts between Swiss and South African scientific and research institutions and for Swiss scholarships. The Office is headed by Jacquelene Friedenthal, Science and Technology Counsellor at the Embassy, attached to the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation.
