Nau mai, piki mai, haere mai. This is an open hui, all welcome.

Waipapa Marae Complex, Wynyard Street, Auckland


The final shortlist of Centre of Research Excellence (CoRE) proposals were confirmed by the Royal Society of NZ 28th February. On Saturday, 1st March, we were advised that Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga was not short listed and thus is not being considered for further CoRE funding.

Obviously this is very disappointing and somewhat a surprise. This decision affects more than 100 of the country’s pre-eminent researchers engaged in research to benefit Māori communities. The centre is now set to close in 2015 unless other arrangements can be made.
