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.
