April Roadshow for Seed Project Funding



The Science for Technological Innovation Seed Project Roadshow is travelling the country in April.

Do you want to contribute to a vibrant, prosperous, technology driven New Zealand? Seed Project funding from the Science for Technological Innovation National Science Challenge could help.

The Challenge recently issued a Call for Proposals to fund 8-10 Seed Projects in 2016.

Hosted by members of the Challenge Management team, the Roadshow will outline the kind of research the Challenge is likely to fund, and explain what it means to be part of a Seed Project. The Roadshow is an opportunity for researchers to ask questions about Seed Project funding, find how to apply and how to get involved in the Science for Technological Innovation researcher community.

The Roadshow will be held from 15–28 April 2016 and will visit Dunedin, Christchurch, Wellington, Palmerston North, Hamilton and Auckland.
