With a postgraduate engineering qualification from one of the top 10 engineering universities in the USA and a career at the CSIR of more than 30 years, Francois Anderson has an impressive list of past achievements to his name. He was appointed as a CSIR Fellow in 1994 and reappointed in 2004. As an active participant in the R&D environment, he heads up the AwareNet project, which is aimed at developing a capability in persistent area surveillance systems to monitor illegal activities on South Africa's borders. His profile and experience as a Fellow position him well to comment on the importance of human capital development.
