16 new projects will receive funding worth $4 million over the next 2 years through the 10th investment round of the Te Pūnaha Hihiko: Vision Mātauranga Capability Fund (VMCF) 2022.
The VMCF aims to build capability, capacity and skills, and strengthen the networks between Māori and the science and innovation system. Research that supports Māori economic, social and cultural development is crucial to enabling advances in wellbeing for Māori and for New Zealand as a whole.
This year’s projects span over a wide range of topics including intergenerational studies, partnering mātauranga Māori with engineering knowledge, and restoration of a tribal rock oyster aquaculture.
