On 25 November 2022, the Eurydice project hosted its first-ever gala lunch with its industry partners and potential industry partners at the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT), in an effort to explore further areas of collaboration, strengthen its relations and attract more partners.
As a result, 24 industry partners expressed an interest in absorbing students and exposing them to growth opportunities within the renewable energy space. Suenil Mcleod from Private-i Corp Investments indicated that his company commits to admitting the first cohort of students for training from March 2023. Mr. Deon Steyn from DSP Consulting (Pty) Ltd, a long-term Central University of Technology, Free State (CUT) partner, also committed to opening his company’s doors for students to receive exposure and training. The Department of Minerals and Energy added that through its internship opportunities, it would also be making an allocation of internship opportunities within the renewable energy sector so that students and graduates from the Eurydice partner institutions can be well empowered and contribute to the space.
Eurydice wants to take this opportunity to thank all of the stakeholders who attended the gala lunch and made comments to collaborate and drive the objectives of the Eurydice project further.
