The Partnerships Scheme supports high-quality research aimed at increasing the competitiveness and sustainability of New Zealand’s economy.
It strengthens ties between research organisations and research users, particularly industry, by supporting them to establish a long-term research programme. Partnership members determine the research they will undertake, so the research is driven by an industry or sector’s needs.
The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment has completed a review of the Partnerships Scheme to check alignment with the strategic direction of the National Statement of Science Investment and other current funding mechanisms.
This page outlines current and recently completed research partnerships and their research objectives.
