Research Institutes in New Zealand

Higher education institutions and a myriad of research institutes work in a vast range of fields and disciplines in New Zealand. The eight Crown Research Institutes collectively form the largest dedicated providers of science research in the country, carrying out research in areas including trade, agriculture, environment, manufacturing and niche technologies.

Other notable research institutes include, The Bioinformatics Institute New Zealand, based at the University of Auckland; The Medical Research Institute of New Zealand; and The New Zealand Tourism Research Institute, also based at the University of Auckland.

There are also many M?ori research organisations, such as the M?ori Development Research Centre, Independent M?ori Institute for Environment & Health, and Whakauae Research for M?ori Health and Development.

Science New Zealand

  • Vision and Purpose
  • Government-owned research organisations
  • Board & Management
  • Member Groups
  • Overview of New Zealand's Science System

Basis of New Zealand’s science system

New Zealand’s investment in science and research helps address the most important issues facing the country, and aims for productive, inclusive and sustainable growth.

The Government's science investment is built on two key pillars:

  • Excellence: Only excellent science will lead to transformative changes to New Zealand’s economy, environment, and society
  • Impact: Science research should have a strong link to the eventual ‘real world’ impact it could have, even if the impact is not clear at the outset and is many years in the future

A detailed overview of New Zealand's science system and key statistics are available on the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) website . 

National science expenditure

The OECD breaks national research expenditure or GERD into BERD, HERD and GovERD. These are defined in the table below with the figures for 2018. 

Source: New Zealand's figures from the Statistics NZ R&D Survey 2018 and OECD Main Science and Technology Indicators Database 2017.

The proportion of government ownership in New Zealand's science system through the CRIs is larger than in many OECD countries. This is partly a reflection of the biological base of much of the country's research. 

How Science New Zealand members contribute

The Crown Research Institutes and Callaghan Innovation are the largest dedicated providers of science research in New Zealand in their specific areas. Collectively, they employ around two-thirds of New Zealand’s publicly-funded science researchers. Our members undertake basic and applied science, and technology research and development in core areas of research, in many instances taking an idea through to its application by end users - either by commercialisation or technological transfer.

Science New Zealand members work in close collaboration with each other as well as researchers from tertiary institutions and industry.

CRIs and Callaghan Innovation collectively employ more than 4,000 scientists, engineers, researchers and technologists. In the 2018/19 financial year, they had combined operating expenditure of $1,156 million, up from $1,004 million in 2017/18 and $920 million in 2016/17.

CRI scientists work across regional, national, and global areas of interest.

CRI outputs include new products and services, and knowledge in specialised areas which are of interest to New Zealand. Several CRIs also work to increase the resilience of communities and sectors to natural hazards, environmental and climate change.

CRIs operate as companies and must cover their own capital costs. The government owns CRIs to carry out research that benefits New Zealand, rather than to maximise profit or generate dividends.

CRIs are charged with promoting the transfer and dissemination of research, science and technology. They are expected to make a difference with the research they produce.

In addition to funding from the Crown, CRIs attract significant investment from the private sector and local government.

Leading and Supporting Pacific Research

The new zealand institute for pacific research is a national institute to promote and support excellence in pacific research. a collaboration between the university of auckland, otago university and the auckland university of technology the nzipr includes new zealand’s leading research universities and also includes new zealand’s largest networks of pacific researchers., research projects, labour markets for sustainable economic development, land and development, private sector investment in the pacific, health, wellbeing, and church responses to gender‐based violence: supporting pacific church capacity for transformative social leadership, te ang maitoro - cooling kiribati and samoa, promoting cultural heritage for sustainable tourism development, healthy eating plus enterprise: healthy eating plus enterprise: a participatory approach to pacific youth contributing to health goals and sustainable economic development, call for sessions: islands and oceans – a conference for pacific research, nzipr critical conversation seminar 14 june 2018, tackling gender-based violence in samoa and the pacific, more frontline research ‘by pacific for pacific’ plea at climate summit, churches tackling gender-based violence conference at pacific theological college, nzipr tala fou domestic violence, pacific law, custom and constitutionalism conference, part i – a conversation between aotearoa nz and samoa: some reflective comments, latest publications.

University research

New Zealand’s eight universities are all research-based institutions. Research is a major output of academic and research-only staff, and informs the teaching and learning environment. Research of national and/or international quality and relevance is expected of modern universities and of academic staff, who may work alone or alongside postgraduate students and other staff employed on research projects.

University research is vital to New Zealand. It produces new knowledge and disseminates that knowledge through:

  • research-informed teaching that produces knowledgeable graduates
  • publications that make knowledge readily available to others
  • research collaborations with industry, government and others in higher education

Adequate support for a high-quality research culture and infrastructure is essential to enable universities to achieve their purpose and mission. This includes the development of the next generation of researchers and innovators. Universities train and employ the vast majority of New Zealand’s research and development staff. In addition to external grant income, the government supports the underlying research framework in universities and the promotion of high quality research through the Performance-Based Research Fund.

New Zealand’s eight universities spend around $960m annually on research, accounting for 37% of New Zealand’s applied research and 54% of all basic research. Over the past two decades, our universities have placed increased focus on innovation and generate over $500m each year through the commercialisation of university research (about 15% of total university income). The research environment, and the income required to support that environment and research outputs, varies from university to university reflecting differences in disciplines and facilities. e.g. engineering, medical and science-based research might have different needs and resource requirements than does some arts-based research.

For more information, facts and stats, see how universities are Driving Research and Innovation .

Research funding

There are the main sources of research funding used by New Zealand's universities:

Marsden Fund

The Marsden Fund is a contestable fund administered by the Royal Society of New Zealand on behalf of the Marsden Fund Council. Marsden Fund research benefits society by contributing to the development of researchers with knowledge, skills and ideas. The research is not subject to government’s socio-economic priorities, but is investigator initiated. The Fund supports research excellence in science, engineering and maths, social sciences and the humanities. Competition for grants is intense.

The 2016 Budget added $66 million over four years, taking it from $54 million in 2015/16 to $80 million in 2019/20.

Health Research Council (HRC)

The Health Research Council supports research that has the potential to improve health outcomes and the delivery of health care, and to produce economic gain for New Zealand.

HRC allocates the majority of funds through an annual funding round to independent research projects that are researcher initiated. Requests for Proposals are also issued to support research in a particular area. A range of awards are available to support the career development of emerging health researchers, and Māori and Pacific researchers.

Budget 2016 added $97 million over four years to the HRC’s funding, increasing it from $77 million in 2015/16 to $120 million in 2019/20.

Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment

The Ministry administers a number of research funds, including:

Endeavour Fund

This fund, previously known as the Contestable Fund, focuses on longer-term research that has high potential to positively transform New Zealand’s future economic performance, sustainability and integrity of our environment, help strengthen our society, and give effect to Vision Mātauranga.

The fund will increase from $183 million in 2015/16 to $200 million in 2019/20.

Te Punaha Hihiko Vision Matauranga Capability Fund

This Fund was established to grow skills and capacity for Maori participation in science and innovation and support outcomes that benefit New Zealand. 

Catalyst Fund

This Fund supports activities that develop and foster international collaborations.

PreSeed Accelerator Fund

This fund supports early-stage technology commercialisation activities. 

Strategic Science Investment Fund

This Fund will be worth $250 million in 2019/20. The bulk of this fund is for core funding for Crown Research Institutes and independent research organisations and is not accessible by universities.

EU AI Act: first regulation on artificial intelligence

The use of artificial intelligence in the EU will be regulated by the AI Act, the world’s first comprehensive AI law. Find out how it will protect you.

A man faces a computer generated figure with programming language in the background

As part of its digital strategy , the EU wants to regulate artificial intelligence (AI) to ensure better conditions for the development and use of this innovative technology. AI can create many benefits , such as better healthcare; safer and cleaner transport; more efficient manufacturing; and cheaper and more sustainable energy.

In April 2021, the European Commission proposed the first EU regulatory framework for AI. It says that AI systems that can be used in different applications are analysed and classified according to the risk they pose to users. The different risk levels will mean more or less regulation. Once approved, these will be the world’s first rules on AI.

Learn more about what artificial intelligence is and how it is used

What Parliament wants in AI legislation

Parliament’s priority is to make sure that AI systems used in the EU are safe, transparent, traceable, non-discriminatory and environmentally friendly. AI systems should be overseen by people, rather than by automation, to prevent harmful outcomes.

Parliament also wants to establish a technology-neutral, uniform definition for AI that could be applied to future AI systems.

Learn more about Parliament’s work on AI and its vision for AI’s future

AI Act: different rules for different risk levels

The new rules establish obligations for providers and users depending on the level of risk from artificial intelligence. While many AI systems pose minimal risk, they need to be assessed.

Unacceptable risk

Unacceptable risk AI systems are systems considered a threat to people and will be banned. They include:

  • Cognitive behavioural manipulation of people or specific vulnerable groups: for example voice-activated toys that encourage dangerous behaviour in children
  • Social scoring: classifying people based on behaviour, socio-economic status or personal characteristics
  • Biometric identification and categorisation of people
  • Real-time and remote biometric identification systems, such as facial recognition

Some exceptions may be allowed for law enforcement purposes. “Real-time” remote biometric identification systems will be allowed in a limited number of serious cases, while “post” remote biometric identification systems, where identification occurs after a significant delay, will be allowed to prosecute serious crimes and only after court approval.

AI systems that negatively affect safety or fundamental rights will be considered high risk and will be divided into two categories:

1) AI systems that are used in products falling under the EU’s product safety legislation . This includes toys, aviation, cars, medical devices and lifts.

2) AI systems falling into specific areas that will have to be registered in an EU database:

  • Management and operation of critical infrastructure
  • Education and vocational training
  • Employment, worker management and access to self-employment
  • Access to and enjoyment of essential private services and public services and benefits
  • Law enforcement
  • Migration, asylum and border control management
  • Assistance in legal interpretation and application of the law.

All high-risk AI systems will be assessed before being put on the market and also throughout their lifecycle.

General purpose and generative AI

Generative AI, like ChatGPT, would have to comply with transparency requirements:

  • Disclosing that the content was generated by AI
  • Designing the model to prevent it from generating illegal content
  • Publishing summaries of copyrighted data used for training

High-impact general-purpose AI models that might pose systemic risk, such as the more advanced AI model GPT-4, would have to undergo thorough evaluations and any serious incidents would have to be reported to the European Commission.

Limited risk

Limited risk AI systems should comply with minimal transparency requirements that would allow users to make informed decisions. After interacting with the applications, the user can then decide whether they want to continue using it. Users should be made aware when they are interacting with AI. This includes AI systems that generate or manipulate image, audio or video content, for example deepfakes.

On December 9 2023, Parliament reached a provisional agreement with the Council on the AI act . The agreed text will now have to be formally adopted by both Parliament and Council to become EU law. Before all MEPs have their say on the agreement, Parliament’s internal market and civil liberties committees will vote on it.
