Hui-ā-Tau Reaffirms NPM Direction

On Thursday 19th May, we hosted our first hui-ā-tau under our new Centre of Research Excellence (CoRE) contract in Wellington.  Our partners, together with Te Kupenga o MAI (MAI TK) representatives, New Zealand Universities Te Kāhui Amokura members and some of our Māori researchers attended the hui. 

It was a constructive and engaging day of sharing and discussing Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga's new research plans, as well as our knowledge sharing, capacity and collaboration strategies including our MAI TK Programme, moving forward. 

A crew from Te Karere also attended and filmed a segment, capturing some interviews for the Thursday night broadcast. You can view this here:

In addition, we were proud to present our Annual Report for 2015 and acknowledge the end of our past CoRE contract, demonstrating the significant outputs and outcomes of our collective work over the previous 12 months. A digital copy of the report can be downloaded at

An important component of this years hui-ā-tau centred around the question of identifying what are the key research opportunities within our partner institutions, and wider network, that will contribute towards our goal of "Māori leading NZ into the future".

We reaffirmed that we will continue to foster our new collective model of operation, and look forward to further collective hui over the months ahead to discuss progress and developments and to assist in the integration of NPM's initiatives.
