Speaker's Science Forum

In partnership with the Speaker of the New Zealand Parliament, we organise research presentations for Members of Parliament.

The aim of the Forum is to present cutting edge research to MPs and decision makers in a non-partisan setting, to inform the issues being addressed in Parliament.

The Speaker's Science Forum was established in 2003 as an annual series initiated by the Chair of the Science and Education Select Committee and given patronage by the Speaker.

Royal Society Te Apārangi, in its role as New Zealand’s national research academy, organises the series in association with Science New Zealand, Universities New Zealand and the Independent Research Association of New Zealand, with the topics chosen in collaboration.
