In 2017 the 8th annual Forum Conference will take place on 17-18 August at the St Georges Hotel in Centurion.  This platform has provided the opportunity for especially HET research initiatives, done in multidisciplinary ways, to be exposed.  Researchers known as outstanding in their fields had been keynote addresses of this conference.  Amongst others Proffs Chris Busby, Anthony Turton, Frank Winde, Melvin Saayman, Kobus van der Walt, Dr Konanani Khorommbi and Juaneé Cilliers.   Since 2012 the NWU-initiative has extended to include coordinating committee representatives from the Free State University of Technology (CUT), the University of South Africa (UNISA) and the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT).
