Te Pūnaha Hihiko: Vision Matauranga

The 2018 investment round for Te Pūnaha Hihiko: Vision Mātauranga Capability Fund is now completed. Please see 'success stories' for details of successful projects. Details of the 2019 round will be issued later in the year.

Te Pūnaha Hihiko: Vision Mātauranga Capability Fund aims to:

  • strengthen capability, capacity, skills and networks between Māori and the science and innovation system, and

  • increase understanding of how research can contribute to the aspirations of Māori organisations and deliver benefit for New Zealand.

The Fund invests in the development of skilled people and organisations that plan to undertake, or are undertaking, research that supports the themes and outcomes of MBIE’s Vision Mātauranga policy.

The Vision Mātauranga policy aims to unlock the science and innovation potential of Māori knowledge, resources and people to assist New Zealanders to create a better future

The Placement Scheme seeks to improve connections between Māori knowledge and research so that Māori innovation potential can be realised through the placement of individuals.
