The Challenge has assembled some of New Zealand’s biggest multi-organisational teams of science and engineering researchers to create bold solutions to significant difficulties facing New Zealand businesses.

Research projects within the Challenge are structured into:
- four 'Themes'
- five research 'Portfolios'
- small 'Seed' projects.


NOTE: If  you're applying to the MBIE Endeavour Fund,  contact us to ensure your proposed research does not duplicate Challenge research. 

If you have an idea for an Endeavour Fund proposal, we encourage you to discuss this with us so that, if successful,  your proposal can benefit from, and complement, our research programmes.
