As you may be aware the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment recently released a Green Paper as the first step in the Te Ara Paerangi - Future Pathways Programme. The Te Ara Paerangi – Future Pathways Programme is focused on creating a modern, future-focused research system for New Zealand. A system that is adaptable for a rapidly changing future, resilient to changes, and connected; to itself, to industry, to public sector users of research, and internationally.
The Green Paper is a consultation document that starts an open and wide-ranging conversation on a range of issues facing the research, science and innovation system.
The Artificial Intelligence Researchers Association has made a submission and you can find it here.
