Draft Research, Science and Innovation Strategy

Days left

Submissions due: 10 November 2019, 5pm

Consultation is now open on the Draft Research, Science and Innovation Strategy

The Government is developing New Zealand’s Research, Science and Innovation (RSI) Strategy to set out our vision for RSI in New Zealand and its role in delivering a productive, sustainable, and inclusive future.

We are keen to hear the views of New Zealanders on the draft RSI Strategy so that we can get a better understanding of what our country needs from RSI. We also are looking for feedback on how we can take action to ensure New Zealand’s RSI system is optimised for success. These views will inform the direction of government investment in RSI and the research and innovation areas for us to focus on as a country, as well as help us understand the challenges we need to overcome.

We encourage anyone with an interest to make a written submission.

Public presentations/workshops

We will also be hosting a series of public presentations and discussions around the country on the draft Strategy. If you are interested in attending, please sign up to one of our upcoming events.

How to make a submission

We have included a number of questions in the draft RSI Strategy document to highlight issues on which we would like further input. We encourage you to use these questions as a guide when submitting your feedback.

The submission form template (also linked above) provides a template for you to provide a written submission on the draft Strategy. It contains the questions from the draft RSI Strategy document, together with space to provide your answers. You do not have to fill out every section – we welcome submissions on some or all of the questions.

After you have finished writing your submission, please upload it using the online submission page (also linked below).

If you have any questions, please contact us at RSI-Strategy@mbie.govt.nz

The closing date for submissions is 10 November 2019.

After the consultation period finishes, we will analyse the submissions received and incorporate the feedback in the final version of the strategy.
