We feel that Data Science is not prioritised in our current research model, and the current consultation process has not sufficiently addressed the importance of Data Science for fast-tracking, and delivering impact from, Aotearoa/New Zealand’s research. Data underpins all research carried out in Aotearoa/New Zealand and supporting those that work with data is imperative. The current model limits the potential of researchers to bring cutting-edge solutions to the problems faced by Aotearoa/New Zealand. The result of Aotearoa/New Zealand’s current research funding model is that Data Science has been regarded as supporting science and research, rather than a field in its own right. We feel that a national strategy is needed to grow Data Science into a world-class field by supporting infrastructure, capability and best practices in security, diversity inclusion and process design.
