Building capability at the intersection of science with mātauranga Māori

1 July, 2020

Two scientists testing water at Whakarewarewa Village Our ongoing partnership with the Whakarewarewa Village Charitable Trust in Rotorua aligns materials science alongside mātauranga Māori in order to explore the synergies of these two knowledge systems.

Planning is already in place for the research findings and experiences from the joint project to be shared openly in a variety of ways, including Wānanga, educational resources and other outreach through local schools.

We submitted two joint research papers for the World Geothermal Congress in 2020. These have both been accepted and will be presented at the Congress (postponed to 2021) hosted in Reykjavik, Iceland.
