National Research Foundation
The NRFwas established through the National Research Foundation Act (Act No 23 of 1998), and incorporates a number of research funding agencies in various sections of the research community. The former Centre for Science Development (CSD), the funding agency established by the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) to fund research in the human sciences, including the arts, is one of these.
The CSD, and later the NRF, have been - and the latter still is - responsible for compiling and maintaining a list of Current and Completed Research in economics, science and humanities (also encompassing the arts and media) by researchers in the South African government, non-government and private sectors. The list begins in the year 1919. (In this respect also see Sabinet)
