Te Ara Paerangi CommunityIn May of 2021, the New Zealand Association of Scientists published a call for review and renewal of the research system. The central government has undertaken a once in a generation review of the Research, Science, and Innovation system. The first step was releasing a green paper in October 2021 called Te Ara Paerangi – Future Pathways. This is an ideas document meant to form the basis of a consultative process and review of the research system. The Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is conducting this process which is expected to take two to three years. A robust review that can help make the system the best it can be for the most people, by necessity, must include thoughts and input beyond the people and groups MBIE’s processes have historically reached. Te Ara Paerangi Community has been formed to help address this challenge.
