Supporting innovation through science and technology education forum
About the conference
Promoting greater uptake of science and technology education is critical for New Zealand’s future economic development. Stronger connections between those working in science, technology and business are needed for this to happen. In this year’s Forum we focus on how those in the areas of science, technology and education are working to improve linkages between stakeholders to foster innovation. What are the expected benefits if we get the connections right?
