Reward South African universities that are more productive

In an article in the Sunday Times of 21 September 2008, Adam Habib wrote that the formula for awarding money for research ought to encourage intervarsity competition. In his article he refers to Malegapuru Makgoba, vice-chancellor of the University of KwaZulu-Natal’s article “A better way to cut up the pie” ( Sunday Times, 7 September ), which brough to the fore the contentious issue of the funding of South Africa’s universities.  He lists this article as worthy of consideration by the Department of Education (DOE ), but criticizes its assumption that South Africa can only offer five globally competitive research institutions — the universities of Pretoria, Stellenbosch, Cape Town, KwaZulu-Natal and the Witwatersrand.
