Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga’s (NPM) new Board for its Centre of Research Excellence (CoRE) contract through the Tertiary Education Commission, held its inaugural meeting on Wednesday, March 23rd to formally establish itself, and will now oversee NPM going forward and assist in achieving our vision of “Māori Leading New Zealand into the Future’.
 

Our congratulations go to Dr Kepa Morgan, NPM Principal Investigator from the University of Auckland who has been awarded the prestigious Furket Award from IPENZ (Engineers NZ) for technical excellence and innovation in the engineering field of sustainability and clean technology.

Kepa Morgan (Ngati Pikiao) has spent his career exploring the interface between Maori and engineering, with research interests that can be understood broadly as Indigenous engineering and technologies.

Traci Houpapa (Waikato Maniapoto, Taranaki, Tūwharetoa) has been awarded the 2016 Distinguished Alumni Service Award by Massey University, for her work in raising the profile of Māori agribusiness across the primary industry sector. She has been a member of Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga's Board for over 3 years, and is the Chair of Landcorp, the Chairperson of the Federation of Māori Authorities (FoMA), and a Tainui Executive Committee member.
