The venue

2013-11-05_07-50-17_540_Pretoria-300x168 IMG_0904 KC5The CSIR campus is a national key point, located within a nature reserve. If you are lucky, you may spot some animals. The CSIR’s Knowledge Commons is a dedicated work space aimed at encouraging CSIR staff to share knowledge and engage in dialogue, debate and reflection. As a catalyst, the Knowledge Commons creates the opportunity for networks across disciplines and organisations. As a hub, it stimulates dialogue within science and research communities about current developments in science and technology innovation.

Make yourself comfortable in the lounge areas during breaks, take a step outside, or use one of the cubicles to make that urgent phone call.
