Science for Technological Innovation (SfTI) – Kia kotahi mai - Te Ao Pūtaiao me Te Ao Hangarau – National Science Challenge.
The Science for Technological Innovation Challenge (SfTI) launched in 2015. One of 11 National Science Challenges, SfTI is a 10-year, multi-million dollar Government investment whose mission is to grow a high-tech New Zealand economy via the physical sciences and engineering.
Vision mātauranga is a New Zealand government science policy framework. Its mission is to unlock the science and innovation potential of Māori knowledge, resources and people for the benefit of all New Zealanders. Vision mātauranga is integrated (kia kōtahi) into all Challenge activity and its way of working and thinking.
To accelerate the evolution of our high-tech economy, we fund our researchers to expand their human and relational skills, so that they can connect and co-innovate with industry and Māori and create new, high-value, high-impact products and services.
