MBIE opens consultation on issues facing research, science and innovation system

Published: 28 October 2021

Te Ara Paerangi Future Pathways, a programme that seeks to start an open and wide-ranging conversation on a range of issues facing the research, science and innovation (RSI) system, has been launched today by the Government.

New Zealand’s research system was designed nearly 30 years ago, and some parts of the system are not working as well as they could be.

The consultation aims to:

  • better identify and deliver on research priorities
  • improve collaboration between institutions
  • understand how the workforce is supported, developed and funded
  • ensure the RSI system is set up to understand and respond to Te Tiriti opportunities.

An inclusive, deliberative and wide-ranging approach will be taken to gather a broad base of views on the issues in the current system and the ideas and opportunities to improve it. The consultation will draw on the collective wisdom, experience and inspiration of our researchers and research users.

There will be a range of opportunities for people to engage with the content, including through written submissions, workshops, webinars, and web content.
