The Institute will strive to be exemplary to many other organisations. The emphasis by the Institute on the Nobel Prize is in recognition of South Africa’s potential as previously demonstrated by the ten Nobel Laureates. The purpose of underscoring research, the search for usable knowledge and education will be to produce responsible citizens. The founders of the Institute acknowledge that without peace there can be no development. The Institute further acknowledges that illiterate societies are always in battle with themselves and hence tend not to make contributions to the world developments and advancement.
