When and where will DH-IGNITE take place?
The original plan with ESCALATOR was to reach out to all public universities in South Africa by hosting various in-person networking and capacity development activities on the various campuses in collaboration with the host institutions.
With COVID restrictions being lifted, we are innovating to reach a broader audience in a shorter time and offer even better opportunities for networking and community building.
We will host SIX DH-IGNITE events across the country between October 2022 and June 2023. Each event will be open to institutions based in specific regions:
- Region 1: KwaZulu Natal - 18 & 19 October 2022 (MUT, DUT, UNIZULU, UKZN)
- Region 2: Gauteng - 21 & 22 November 2022 - date to be confirmed (UP, UNISA, TUT, VUT, SMU, WITS, UJ, CSIR, HSRC)
- Region 3: Western Cape - 20 & 21 Feb 2023 - date to be confirmed (UWC, UCT, SU, CPUT)
