Welcome to the NSTF Awards, the flagship project of the

National Science and Technology Forum (NSTF)

in partnership with BHP Billiton since 2011

The NSTF Awards encourage and reward excellence in Scientific Research, Technological Innovation, Education, Management and related activities, Capacity Building, and Communication, thereby honouring and celebrating outstanding contributions to Science, Engineering, Technology and Innovation (SETI) since 1998, and in partnership with BHP Billiton since 2011.

The winners were announced and celebrated in Gauteng on Thursday, 3 July 2014, at the 16th NSTF-BHP Billiton Awards Gala Dinner. The awards were presented by the Honourable Minister of Science and Technology, Ms Naledi Pandor, who is also the patron of the event, and celebrated along with almost 600 guests from the broader science community.

The theme for the 2013/14 NSTF-BHP Billiton Awards gala dinner is Crystallography,
as declared by the United Nations as an International Year for 2014,
to commemorate not only the centennial of X-ray diffraction,
which allowed the detailed study of crystalline material,
but also the 400th anniversary of Kepler’s observation in 1611 of the symmetrical form
of ice crystals, which began the wider study of the role of symmetry in matter.
