"An academic is warning cuts to university staff is short-sighted and will undermine the government's own science goals.
Professor Nicola Gaston is the Co-Director of the MacDiarmid Institute and a professor in the Department of Physics at The University of Auckland. She says the proposed cuts not only jeopardise the national research capability but also highlight the need for a collective approach to address the funding crisis. She is calling for a rethink of how we fund and operate our universities and research institutes."
