Look at all of these research briefs!

Ahead of the conference, BioHeritage researchers put together a suite of two-page research briefs. Each brief was designed to elegantly summarise the key results and next steps for many of the Challenges themes and projects. Check out the briefs here!

The Challenge’s research is structured into three impact areas. Whakamana – Empower seeks to help New Zealanders protect our precious environment; Tiaki – Protect contributes to a world-class biosecurity system; and Whakahou – Restore works to provide avenues for creating a resilient, thriving environment. Spanning the impact areas is the Pou – Supporting Architecture, housing work that guides and reflects on how the Challenge has gone about conducting research – the insight from our Pou help support and strengthen our research. 

Each of these areas shared some of their results at the Crazy & Ambitious 4 conference, both as presentations and in the form of two-page research briefs. If you’d like a high-level overview of research areas/projects or would like to concisely share Challenge outputs with a policy-maker or decision-maker in your life, here’s a list of the available briefs. Links labelled “webpage” will direct you to the dedicated webpage on the Challenge’s Data Repository, which will have resources additional to and inclusive of the briefs list. The bullet points that follow are direct links to the PDF of each research brief. Enjoy!
