The University of South Africa (UNISA) FameLab heat was part of the institution’s Research and Innovation Week. UNISA also opened the competition to contestants from other institutions, and there was a wide variety of research topics to hear about.

The South African Agency for Science and Technology Advancement (SAASTA) plays a significant part in rolling FameLab out in South Africa, and Dr Mthuthuzeli Zamxaka from the agency judged the heat along with Professor Ndikho Mtshiselwa from UNISA.
