ANFF has a new client engagement facilitator (Matthew Chong) to help businesses and researchers in SA connect to the facilities in SA– see this article.

Engaging with ANFF starts with a conversation to help us understand your project and how we can assist you.

Given the array of expertise available within ANFF, the first step is to work out where the network is most suited to assist you. Click here for more on our Nodes’ specialities.

Then, a specific consultation is held with the relevant expert to establish what the aims of the project are, to plot a course, and discuss feasibility testing if necessary.
