Response to Te Ara Paerangi - Future Pathways Green Paper
2022: Our submission on Te Ara Paerangi - Future Pathways Green Paper.
The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment launched Te Ara Paerangi - Future Pathways Green Paper for reforming the Research, Science and Innovation system in 2021, including a process of engagement with stakeholders.
Royal Society Te Apārangi has submitted a detailed response to the questions posed within Te Ara Paerangi. We applaud the government’s openness to hearing a wide range of perspectives in its consultation and we also look forward to being part of the continuing conversation as the anticipated 'white paper' is developed.
We have focused on those areas where we can add value through our independent perspective. The Society’s Council has approved this submission. However, it does not necessarily represent the views of all our members.
The Society is grateful for the opportunity to comment on this highly important piece of work, as the government considers how to reimagine and reconfigure the Research, Science and Innovation system in New Zealand.
Ruia taitea, kia tū ko taikākā.
Shed those outer layers and reveal your internal courage.
