Envirolink Update - 14 July 2017
New reports are available on this website (under Reports).
Advice Grant Funding
A new Advice Grant funding round commenced 1 July 2017. Eligible councils are encouraged to make early use of this fund in order for research providers to complete projects within the financial year. Marlborough and Southland are off to a flying start.
The current tool round will close in early October 2017 and SIGS and others should be discussing opportunities well in advance of this date.
Regional Council Revised RS&T Strategy
The Regional Council RS&T Strategy has been revised and is now available in final form on this website. The strategy takes both a top-down and a bottom-up approach as it contains input from 9 Special Interest Group strategies. It has been invaluable in providing direction to the MBIE contestable funding round that closed mid March. It has also been used to provide input to the DoC/MfE Conservation and Environment Science Roadmap, to Biosecurity 2025, and to other MPI initiatives.
A SIG Science Strategy workshop is planned for Wellington on the 20-21 July 2017. Material from the workshop will be posted on this website.
