GCRO 2008/2009 Annual Report
September 2008 saw the launch of an exciting new initiative – the Gauteng City-Region Observatory. The initiative is exciting for two reasons. First, the Observatory represents a grand experiment: a jointly established research centre that stands between the University of Johannesburg and the University of the Witwatersrand, governed by a Board and jointly supported, financially and in kind, by the Gauteng Provincial Government and the two academies.
We hope that this experiment will show a vista of other possibilities for collaboration across higher education institutions in our country, and other potential partnerships between government and the academy.
