Mātauranga Māori Research

MBIE’s Vision Mātauranga policy aims to unlock the science and innovation potential of Māori knowledge, people and resources for the benefit of New Zealand.  

The four themes of the Vision Mātauranga policy are:

  • indigenous innovation: contributing to economic growth through distinctive science and innovation
  • taiao/environment: achieving environmental sustainability through iwi and hapū relationships with land and sea
  • hauora/health: improving health and social wellbeing
  • mātauranga: exploring indigenous knowledge and science and innovation

For this reason the Vision Mātauranga policy is embedded across all science investments, and forms a core component for the implementation of MBIE’s approach to supporting outcomes for Māori and New Zealand.
