Celebrating NPM Researchers Success

The successful 2018 Marsden Fund recipients have been announced from across the country and this year the list includes many past and present NPM researchers working as Principal Investigators and Associate Investigators on a number of new, engaging and exciting projects.

The Marsden Fund grants support New Zealand’s best investigator-initiated research in the areas of science, engineering, maths, social sciences and the humanities and it is important that research borne out of matauranga Māori has been recognised and celebrated this year.
