EThekwini to Lead Strategic Research and Development with Academia and Industry
EThekwini Municipality’s collaboration with regionally anchored academia, through the Municipal Institute of Learning (MILE), will take a leap over the next 3 years as it will now include business and industry as strategic partners in a new triad model to move the research for urban development agenda. 
Whilst the new partnership builds on existing collaborations with local academia spanning more than 10 years, the impact is already contributing to social and economic development in many ways. The aim of the research symposium is to share research findings from evidence based research and city- university collaborations within the key theme of managing a nexus framework as it relates to the securitization of water, food and energy. The objectives of the Research Symposium 2019 are: 

To provide a platform for the release of and engagement with evidence-based research located within the nexus framework.  
To identify opportunities for research deemed relevant and impactful within the nexus concept for applying them in public policy making.  
To provide networking opportunities and cross- scale interaction to further strengthen collaboration between academia, industry and municipal practitioners in advancing the nexus framing
To profile knowledge products and show-case innovations, creativity and best practices within the broader conceptual framework. 

The robust program allows space for sector experts, researchers and city practitioners to engage constructively in identifying options to transfer applied research to praxis and policy.  Members of the media are invited as follows:
