CRI task force report spot on

CRI task force report spot on

Business NZ has congratulated the Crown Research Institute Taskforce’s report ‘How to enhance the value of New Zealand’s investment in Crown Research Institutes’.

Business NZ Chief Executive Phil O’Reilly said “The report’s recommendations will be warmly welcomed by business.

“They offer an admirable blue print of how to improve the performance of our RS&T investment in CRIs and their capacity to collaborate with business to grow the New Zealand economy.

“The recommendations outline how CRIs, through technology transfer, can play a powerful role in improving New Zealand’s collective wealth as a nation.

“By meeting their full potential, CRIs can form a critical part of the infrastructure needed to very significantly improve our economy and our communities.

“We believe that the Government should now move forward with a real sense of purpose to put these proposed changes in place. We look forward to working with the Government on this.”
