Crown research institutes are looking for better ways to engage with leading figures in the Maori economy.

The seven CRIs and Callaghan Innovation are coming together for a two day symposium in Rotorua next month, Te Ara Putaiao.

Organising committee chair Marino Tahi says Maori have a strong and active presence in New Zealand’s primary industries.

The symposium, which has the theme "Developing Pathways, Realising Potential", will feature presentations by expert scientists including some of the leading Maori scientists, entrepreneurs, business leaders, directors, trustees and government officials.

There will also be research case studies, workshops and discussion sessions designed to strengthen collaborative efforts to realise the potential of Maori land and water resources.

ODT Cartoon outrage misplaced
We should collectively be righteously appalled at the tone deaf ODT cartoon that made light of the terrible measles epidemic that has killed over 50 children in Samoa. It was an ugly 'joke' that shouted white privilege, but calls to boycott the ODT, sack the cartoonist and the enormous social media wave of fury seem to me to be grotesquely misplaced.
