The Eastern Cape Department of Economic Development, Environmental Affairs and Tourism (DEDEAT) will together with all the four Eastern Cape Universities host the Emerging Views on Eastern Cape (EC) Economy Conference in Port Elizabeth, Nelson Mandela University (NMU) on the 30 September 2019.
This emerging research platform is an attempt to promote EC emerging scholars and connect their research directly to the needs of the province and the country.
This is in recognition of the massive untapped potential of research work (related to economic development) generated each year by emerging scholars and postgraduate students.
The Department has together with the partnering universities undertaken to engage this group with the view to harnessing this potential.
Other partnering universities are the University of Fort Hare, Rhodes University and Walter Sisulu University.
