Call for Proposals - Maori Science and Knowledge Systems
The Our Land and Water, Toitū te Whenua, Toiora te Wai, National Science Challenge is calling for proposals to be submitted by noon 29 September 2017.
The Challenge used its think-piece process to provide an evidence base to address the primary question: “What is the unique contribution that Māori science and knowledge systems can make to the attainment of the challenge mission?”
A workshop was conducted on the 16th of August and with feedback refined some additional research questions that addressed this question and the Challenge objective. These were focused in two areas which are included in the documents at the link below.
