The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, commonly known as the CSIR, is a world-class African research and development organisation established through an Act of Parliament in 1945. Its executive authority is the Minister of Science and Technology. The CSIR undertakes directed, multidisciplinary research and technological innovation that contribute to the improved quality of the life of South Africans.

The organisation plays a key role in supporting government’s programmes through directed research that is aligned with the country’s priorities, the organisation’s mandate and its science, engineering and technology competences. The CSIR fosters partnerships with a network of partner organisations and clients, regionally and abroad, as part of a global sphere of influence on matters of technology.

We draw expertise from diverse research fields to provide integrated solutions and interventions to support a broad range of national development programmes, as set out in the National Development Plan. Our national footprint is testament to our commitment to serving diverse communities and sectors, with the CSIR’s main campus located in Pretoria and our regional offices in Durban, Johannesburg and Stellenbosch – in proximity to applicable industries across the country.
