The Great New Zealand Science Project

The Great New Zealand Science Project – public submissions closing on 27 January

Public submissions on The Great New Zealand Science Project will be closing at midnight on 27 January.

Over the last two months the Project has been asking New Zealanders to identify what they think are the biggest science challenges facing the country.

It outlines eight illustrative challenge areas: marine resources; biodiversity; natural hazards; health and disease; land and water; changing climate; advanced materials and manufacturing; and foods for health.

You can support these challenges or propose completely new ones that you believe are important to New Zealand’s future.

Encourage your family and friends to get involved and visit to have your say on science today.

After 27 January no new submissions or comments can be made on the website, however, you will be able to view people’s ideas and get updates. In addition, our Facebook page and Twitter account will remain open for ongoing discussion and updates.

The ideas and comments about possible Challenges submitted through the Great New Zealand Science Project will be assessed by an expert panel in February, together with the submissions from the science sector. The final list of Challenges will be decided by Cabinet in April 2013.
