Entries open for Research Effectiveness Awards 2014


Research Association New Zealand is calling all researchers from corporate organisations or agencies to register their interest in this year’s Research Effectiveness Awards.

Rob Bree, General Manager, Research Association New Zealand, says the aim of the awards is to highligh excellence in research.

“We know there are some fantastic examples of research being carried out in our industry and the bi-annual awards are an opportunity to recognise those who are involved.

“The overarching goal for us at Research Association New Zealand is to enhance and promote research within New Zealand business and wider society.

“The Awards are a really important part of realising that goal – highlighting best practice and showcasing innovative examples of research that reaches across the business and social spectrum, shines a light on the importance of the whole industry.”

The awards, last held in 2012, will be presented at a black tie evening at The Hilton Hotel, 26 September 2014.
