NPM has developed and confirmed eight new seed and scope research projects that will deliver innovative, inspiring and impactful research, and initiate and lead to transformative outcomes.

Te Reo me ngā tikanga Māori

NPM congratulates our affiliated researchers who were acknowledged by the Royal Society Te Apārangi at the RSNZ 2019 Research Honours evening held in Dunedin on Thursday 17 October.

Dr Ocean Ripeka Mercier (Ngāti Porou) was awarded the 2019 Callaghan Medal for her pioneering work to engage audiences in science and mātauranga Māori,

The inaugural Te Rangaunua Hiranga Māori Award, which recognises excellent, innovative co-created research conducted by Māori that has made a distinctive contribution to community wellbeing and development in Aotearoa, has been awarded to Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga, New Zealand's Māori Centre of Research Excellence, by Royal Society Te Apārangi.

In a new initiative, Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) New Zealand’s Māori Centre of Research Excellence is celebrating and recognising the careers of three Māori leaders and visionaries, who have a long history of bringing about major social change and impact in Aotearoa New Zealand. 

Professor Rawinia Higgins, NPM Board member, says that these new Ruānuku positions formally acknowledge the generous ongoing roles these exceptional Māori leaders have agreed to provide to NPM.

The University of Otago recently appointed seven of its leading scholars to prestigious new roles as sesquicentennial distinguished chairs, and one of these appointees was NPM's co-director Professor Jacinta Ruru.
