Science System Advisory Group – first phase of submissions open

The Science System Advisory Group (SSAG) is now seeking submissions for phase one of its consultation process.

Submissions are open until 11.59pm Friday 17 May 2024.

The SSAG has been established by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment to provide advice to the government on strengthening the science, innovation and technology system.

In the first phase of consultation, the questions are broad and high-level to allow the SSAG to determine principles that will shape subsequent discussions and calls for future submissions.

Group members will consider challenges and aspirations of the many components of the sector, and its structure, efficiency and effectiveness. A two-part report will be developed, with the first part delivered end of June, and the second end of October 2024.

The first part will focus on determining principles for the sector moving ahead and providing preliminary advice and recommendations. The second will provide final recommendations and advice on longer-term changes to ensure the future success of the science system in New Zealand.
