Building on the successes of the SA-YSSP, the DST and NRF took a strategic decision to continue investing in and expanding activities around systems analysis under the Southern African Systems Analysis Centre (SASAC) initiative. In 2015, a consortium of four universities, namely the University of the Western Cape, the Universities’ of Limpopo and the Witwatersrand, and Stellenbosch University was competitively selected to host SASAC during 2016 and 2018. The SASAC model takes cognisance of a wider framework of engagement, additional and multi-level systems analysis capacity interventions, and a comprehensive approach to policy-related activities in South- and Southern Africa.
