    Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga applauds changes to Performance Based Research Fund 

    Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM), Aotearoa New Zealand’s Māori Centre of Research Excellence supports changes to the Performance Base Research Fund and is calling on tertiary institutions to take bold action to address deep-seated inequities. 

  • Research partners and communities, supported through Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga’s Te Tai Ao research theme, have generated many insights into how we can work with our environment/taiao according to tikanga and mātauranga Māori, and the benefits of these approaches. Te Tai Ao has supported dozens of hapū and hapori to achieve better outcomes for environments, and people in those environments, in the face of pressing challenges such as climate change and declining biodiversity.

  • Fulbright New Zealand and Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga New Zealand’s Māori Centre of Research Excellence are delighted to announce that Dr Pounamu Jade Aikman (Ngāti Maniapoto, Tainui, Ngāi te Rangi, Ngāti Awa) is the 2021 recipient of the Fulbright-Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga Scholar Award to undertake research in the US.

  • Fulbright New Zealand and Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) are thrilled to announce that Jenni Tupu (Ngāpuhi, Te Aupōuri, Ngāti Hine, Samoa) is the recipient of the 2021 Fulbright-Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga Graduate award which will enable her to undertake research in the US.

    Learn about how the face-paced world of social media and other technologies are already having an influence on Māori research. Whether you’re a TikTok aficionado or still struggling to post a status update on Facebook, this is for you.
    In this online panel discussion, we’ll hear from tech-savvy scholars, Dr Acushla Dee Sciascia (Massey University) and Associate Professor Te Taka Keegan (University of Waikato), about the opportunities and issues of using social media as a tool for Māori research and researchers.

    All welcome! Students, researchers, community members.

  • Completing a postgraduate thesis can be one of the most satisfying accomplishments that a Māori student can achieve. Too often, however, that experience can be hampered when issues arise with their supervision or research topic.

    In this online panel discussion, we’ll hear from experienced supervisors, Professor Jenny Lee-Morgan (Unitec) and Associate Professor Anaru Eketone (University of Otago), about supervising Māori students and projects. What works? What doesn’t? And, how can we not just survive, but thrive, in the research supervision relationship?
