Knowledge Exchange is essential to Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga’s vision of transforming society, to achieve the high multipliers we seek from our research the findings of scholarship very often must be actively applied by others.
As opposed to simple knowledge transfer, we are seeking to build strong relationships where research and the communities it serves mutually feed and build on the success of the other.
This means engaging with people at all levels of the education system, policy agencies and government; together with the Māori community and sectors of the international and academic communities with interests in Indigenous development.
To date, development of the Knowledge Exchange Programme has depended, of necessity, on the prior establishment of Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga’s other programmes. Knowledge must be created before it can be exchanged. But, through the initiatives listed below, we are seeing faster and more widespread progress from research to paper and from there to broader community engagement.
Our funding enables us to support researchers with various grants for publishing, setting up events and attending these events.
