Hosting opportunity for the New Zealand Science Media Centre

We are seeking applications from New Zealand organisations to host the New Zealand Science Media Centre. This Centre is a unique part of the research, science and innovation and media system in New Zealand.

The New Zealand Science Media Centre must be editorially and operationally independent, responsible for its own strategic direction, operational matters, and its communications and branding activities. The New Zealand Science Media Centre must be a signatory to the network’s Science Media Centre Charter and uphold the Charter’s principles.

We are seeking applications from New Zealand organisations to host the New Zealand Science Media Centre and to continue the delivery of this work programme for the next 5 years.
