NPM Seeding and Scoping - Request For Proposals

Our Call for new Seed and Scope Research proposals has opened - we will hold hui to discuss ideas, answer questions and assist; but applications must be in by 30 June 2019.

Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) is again developing new seed and scope research that contributes to its research programme and outcomes. We will develop and commence research projects that contribute to our outcomes and vision, by providing a small contestable fund for our researchers (research partner network) that will initiate excellent research that has transformative potential.
