NZTech Inform: Strengthening R&D

This event has passed Register

Event description

Involved in R&D or innovation?  This is a must-attend event!

The Government is launching two new R&D grants to boost business innovation.  The grants aim to help with the high costs and steep learning curves associated with R&D.  They will also provide  pathways to the existing R&D Tax Incentive (RDTI).   Learn more or provide feedback into their design at our next NZTech Inform event. 

The Ārohia Innovation Trailblazer Grant will support non-R&D innovation activities.  It is designed to help businesses whose activity is likely to build capabilities or create opportunities with wider benefits across the New Zealand innovation system.  It will be targeted at businesses pioneering innovation or building platforms that will help other innovators.

The New to R&D Grant will support businesses in the early stages of their investment to help establish an R&D programme and build their capability. 

Join NZTech’s CEO Graeme Muller and Dr Jeremy Smith, Senior Policy Advisor in the Innovation Policy team at the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) as they discuss the new grants.  What do the grants involve? Who are they for? When will they be available?  Hear directly from the MBIE policy team and learn more during this interactive online event.
