The Department of Science and Technology has established the Directed Risk Research Programme (DRRP) which provides funding to universities with an interest in research into risk in financial services. In 2020 the name of the programme was changed to the Industry Directed Research Unit (IDRU)
The Centre of Excellence in Financial Services with its research mandate, has partnered with the IDRU to source and provide a portal for problem statements from the banking and broader financial sector, which will provide more meaningful research directed by the needs of the industry.
Research once completed will be published on our website and serve as an input to further deliberations at the Centre of Excellence.
