Parties & Affiliates
The BioHeritage Challenge's role is to co-ordinate collaborative, multi-disciplinary projects that focus the research of top scientists from 18 partner organisations.
Our Challenge Parties include all of Aotearoa New Zealand’s universities and many of its Crown Research Institutes. Mana whenua, iwi and Māori groups, government and non-government organisations, private citizens and regional councils are also working with the Challenge.
This inclusive approach breaks down barriers between research organisations and individual scientists, generating synergies that are leading to ground-breaking scientific advances.
