Te Ara Paerangi - Future Pathways process is intended to build a new research system for Aotearoa New Zealand. We have gathered a group of people here (mostly researchers so far) and put out some great ideas to get things started. Our plan is to reach out broadly across Aotearoa to more researchers, and crucially to those who are users of research. Examples of users include: whānau, hapū and iwi, local and regional councils, community groups, businesses, non-governmental organisations, and charities. By listening to one another, sharing our talents and our challenges we can design a future research system that works for everyone. Such a research system will provide the foundation for a future Aotearoa that is prosperous for all of our people. With that in mind, we offer a talk by Sir Paul Callaghan from 2011. After the upcoming holidays, we start the next steps in expanding this community and working our plan.
