Our Values

As a collaborative platform, Future Africa’s mode of operating is guided by principles of common purpose and shared value. Future Africa has a wide network of collaborators from the University of Pretoria, other universities in South Africa and the continent, as well as the global academy. These collaborators contribute to Future Africa in various ways such as sharing ideas, offering advice, providing expertise, leading research and training activities, all while utilising the resources of Future Africa to advance transformative research in their home institutions.

In everything we do, Future Africa safeguards the values of:

  • Excellence and professionalism
  • Inclusivity and diversity
  • Creativity and open mindedness
  • Transparency and integrity
  • Organisational sustainability

We stimulate bold ideas and disruptive thinking on how research can make a difference to real world problems.
