Our Research

We live in a data rich but knowledge poor world.

Te Pūnaha Matatini is a novel and exciting collaboration that brings together experts from the academic research community, industry, and government to develop the methods and tools that will transform that data into knowledge, providing insight for businesses, government, and communities.

We’re working with our stakeholders from industry, government, and the community to help reshape New Zealand’s economy, society, and environment by developing new tools for understanding and managing large complex datasets, and transferring these tools to New Zealand’s business and government sectors for increased productivity and insight.
