The University of Johannesburg is in the process of establishing a culture of academic innovation at the University. Faculties have been asked to help with engaging staff and postgraduate students to raise the level of innovation. Faculties will provide their staff with information on innovation, interdisciplinary possibilities and intellectual property management practices. They will in essence have to relay the message that some of the knowledge the University creates can and should be protected and tested for commercial viability.

However, how do we define innovation in the Humanities? Below are some example of community engagement projects/ researches that have social impact.
