Te Pae Kahurangi, the government’s 2020 CRI review, has signalled changes ahead. While the future of National Science Challenges is unclear, there is still much that can be achieved in the next 3 years. The ability of our National Science Challenges to push at the edges of critical societal issues creates a unique environment for practical and innovative responses to issues associated with Wai 262.
This session will discuss challenges and opportunities in Aotearoa’s science system, highlight examples of responsible practice within National Science Challenges, and look at where we can prioritise action to advance this kaupapa over the next 3 years.
The webinar presentations and panellist kōrero will be complete in 2 hours, including facilitated discussion and some questions. We have scheduled an additional 30 minutes so that all audience questions can be answered. The webinar will end before 3:30pm if all questions have been answered.
