Date: 6 May 2019
Time: 15:00 – 16:30
Venue: Goldfields Auditorium, Nelson Mandela University North Campus, Summerstrand, Port Elizabeth 
Chair: Jeremy Gibberd
Purpose of the Session: To share progress on the STI 4 SHS Roadmap HCD and Capabilities report, and draft Framework with relevant academics, to provide a forum to validate the Roadmap Framework and to explore opportunities for the roles and responsibilities of academia in the implementation design of the Roadmap.  Proceedings will be recorded and compiled into a short report which will form one of the inputs into the STI 4 SHS Roadmap. 
Format: The session will have the following structure.
1. The chair welcomes all, introduces the session and provides a rapid overview of STI 4 SHS Roadmap HCD and Capabilities report, and draft Framework. The draft Framework will be circulated to all invited panellists prior to SASUF.
2. The chair then asks panellists to respond to a question or comment over a number of rounds. The envisaged questions and rounds of discussion will be based on slides 1- 26 of the draft Roadmap Framework:
A. Introductory: Are the introduction, definition process, status quo and trends, and insights from consultation clear and adequate upon which to found the Roadmap implementation? (Slides 3 – 20). Anything missing? Any further suggestions?
B. Vision 2030: Is the vision articulated on Slide 21, concise, succinct and relevant? Anything missing? Any further suggestions?
C. Roadmap: With reference to Slides 25 and 26, are the clusters identified appropriate? Anything missing? Any further suggestions?
D. Implementation: With reference to academia, what are the potential roles and responsibilities in executing the proposed Roadmap?
3. To close the session, the chair will summarise the discussions, thank the participants and confirm how the outputs of the session will be used.
