LOOKING TO THE FAR HORIZON: ARCHITECTS OF A NEW FUTURE
2010 has yet again been a busy year in the life of Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga and here we present the breadth and range of research and activities undertaken, hosted and supported by our Centre over the year. While addressing needs in our communities now, we are also looking firmly to the future, to the far horizon, and supporting research and activities that will transform the research discipline, our communities and society in general.
Below are some of the highlights of the many successes. For more stories and information download the Annual Report 2010
