This report and the data collected through the survey will inform MBIE’s work on Te Ara Paerangi Future Pathways.

Te Ara Paerangi Future Pathways is a multi-year programme focused on the future of New Zealand’s research system. It is about identifying opportunities for change in the RSI system and devising solutions to these, including those related to the RSI workforce.

The workforce is key to the success of the RSI system, so we want to ensure the RSI system attracts, retains and develops an excellent and diverse workforce at all levels.

This data will play an important role in supporting our work to do this, by helping us to understand the opportunities for greater diversity at all levels of the workforce, to better support our workforce to have the skills it will need in the future, to facilitate better connections across the RSI system and to better enable the workforce to focus on research.

MBIE would like to thank all those that worked on responses to the RSI workforce survey of organisations for their contributions.
