New Zealand’s top researchers were honoured at the Royal Society’s 150th gala dinner held in Auckland on the night of Tuesday 10th October, and amongst these awardees were three of NPM’s outstanding Principal Investigators.

Outgoing NPM Co-Director and senior researcher Professor Tracey McIntosh (Tūhoe), was awarded the prestigious Te Rangi Hiroa Medal for significantly advancing our understanding of enduring social injustices to ensure greater Māori wellbeing, social cohesion and meaningful cultural diversity in Aotearoa.  

On Tuesday 31 October & Wednesday 1 November 2017 NPM will once again be hosting its popular Science Media Savvy - Media Skills for Māori Researchers workshop - and this time it is in Christchurch.

This highly-acclaimed media and communications workshop is run by the Science Media Centre and continues the approach followed over recent NPM sessions in Dunedin and Auckland over the past two years.

The new publication, Precarity: Uncertain, Insecure and Unequal Lives in Aotearoa New Zealand has strong links to NPM's Whai Rawa research theme and ongong work, as well as a selection of our researchers and investigators, including Dr Bridgette Masters-Awatere, Dr Natasha Tassell Matamua, Dr Shiloh Groot, Dr Mohi Rua and Professor Darrin Hodgetts
