Māori Research Partnerships

Genuine consideration of Māori interests is integral to ensuring that research proposals and projects are robust and transparent to the Māori community. Government research funders expect a demonstrated commitment to ensuring research is responsive to the diverse needs and interests of Māori as well as advancing outcomes for, with and by Māori.

The Ministry of Business, Employment and Innovation have embedded their Vision Mātauranga Policy into their research funding processes, to unlock the science and innovation potential of Māori knowledge (Mātauranga Māori), resources and people. The Health Research Council expect research institutions to demonstrate the quality and extent of their partnership and relationship with Māori through consultation and discussion with Māori, HRC Maori Health Advancement Guidelines.pdf .
