Implementation and Impact Evaluation of the Technology and Human Resources for Industry Programme (THRIP)

Description

The Technology and Human Resources for Industry Programme (THRIP) is a research and development programme established during 1992 with the objective of accelerating economic growth, creating wealth on a sustainable basis and improving the quality of life of all South Africans.
On a cost-sharing basis with industry, THRIP supports science, engineering and technology research collaborations focused on addressing the technology needs of participating firms and encouraging the development and mobility of research personnel and students among participating organisations. It is funded by the Department of Trade and Industry (the dti) and managed by the National Research Foundation (NRF). THRIP aims to improve the competitiveness of South African industry by supporting research and technology development. In addition, the Programme addresses one of the most critical issues related to the country?s international competitiveness, i.e., to increase the number and quality of people with appropriate skills to develop and manage technology for industry. The issue has been of importance when the Programme was initiated and remains a main focus of the Programme.
As part of its mandate under the National Evaluation Policy Framework (NEPF) and in partnership with the dti, the Department of Performance Monitoring and Evaluation (DPME) issued the terms of reference (ToR) for the evaluation of THRIP.
