SfTI invests in two types of research projects: Seed and Spearhead projects
We offer our researchers a unique professional development programme.
Vision Mātauranga is integrated (kia kōtahi) into our activities, ways of working and thinking. It guides our researchers on how to embed purposeful and mutually beneficial relationships with Māori.
Our mission is to grow New Zealand's high-tech economy via the physical sciences and engineering. SfTI researchers play a pivotal role in ensuring we achieve this mission by bringing their research closer to commercialisation.
