Research and Development Unit

“As a university of technology, all research programmes are directed at solving problems in business, industry, and government (this is known as the triple-helix approach), and are aimed at contributing to the socio-economic development of the region.”

The Research Cycle

Here at CUT, research development, technology transfer, innovation and commercialisation activities are understood to be complementary. These activities form part of what is commonly known as the research cycle.

The research cycle can be described as the process of taking the research problem through various academic stages, such as:

  • Knowledge generation (postgraduate research),
  • Knowledge transmission (publications, presentations, and intellectual property),
  • Knowledge application  
  • spin-in to business and industry, and first step towards third-stream income,
  • spin-out and sustained third-stream income, and
  • socio-economic development and further public good
