South African SDG Hub

"The South African SDG Hub is a metaplatform that aggregates the best and most relevant research on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) from South African and selected non-South African universities. Our machine-learning-based classification tool classifies research in terms of one or more of the SDGs. Our mission is to increase the impact of research published on universities' institutional repositories.

The South African SDG Hub is a national resource hosted by the Albert Luthuli Leadership Institute at the University of Pretoria.

The platform currently contains more than 330 000 research items, with tens of thousands of these research items classified in terms of one or more of the SDGs."
