The Centre for Science, Technology and Innovation Indicators (CeSTII) is a statistical and policy research unit that conducts R&D and innovation surveys on behalf of South Africa’s Department of Science and Innovation. CeSTII produces national indicators and analyses to inform policymaking and provide a basis for international comparisons. Established in 2001, CeSTII is the custodian of a rich database of longitudinal trend data from regular business innovation surveys and the annual South African R&D Survey. CeSTII also contributes actively to Africa’s STI indicator measurement community, and finds new ways to interrogate data to help address developmental challenges and inform South Africa's priority economic sectors.
