Royal Society Te Apārangi Early Career Researcher Forum Response to Te Ara Paerangi
Royal Society Te Apārangi's Early Career Researcher (ECR) Forum represents New Zealand’s ECR community and celebrates their achievements and contributions in the fields of physical, biological, and social sciences, as well as the humanities. The Forum is dedicated to engaging New Zealand ECRs on issues important to them and fostering a collaborative, communicative, and respected community under the auspices of Royal Society Te Apārangi. This submission was collated through a series of online talanoa, emails and feedback from our
He Pito Mata Wananga that brought together over 300 ECRs at Te Whare Waka o Pōneke to connect and envision a future for Aotearoa New Zealand’s research sector. Attendees included ECRs from universities, CRIs, wānanga, IROs, industry and private companies. Invitations to
contribute to this submission were sent to our forum members and He Pito Mata attendees. This was an iterative process over 4 months. Vinaka vaka levu to ECR Forum members who volunteered their time to bring this document to fruition.
