What elements should be present in the Chinese/CUT collaborative if Africa is tipped as the new China?

CUT Additive Manufacturing (3D printing technology) has been under the spotlight in the last few weeks since the miraculous work that was done by Dr Cules van den Heever, an Extraordinary Professor at CUT from the University of Pretoria, and CUT’s Centre for Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing (CRPM).

These promising developments within science and technology at the Central University of Technology, hold potential for meaningful collaboration between South Africa and China.

What would be interesting to watch is the impact it would make on developing innovative skills amongst our students that could lead to South African designed solutions by young entrepreneurial and ingenious South Africans which could be exported.

A key question therefore is, iIf Africa is tipped to be the next China, what components need to be present in the CUT/Chinese collaboration for that prophecy to be fulfilled?
