Blending Mātauranga Māori (Māori knowledge) with modern research methods is a strategic priority for the BioHeritage Challenge and, as such, we are proud sponsors of this year’s International Indigenous Research Conference (IIRC).

As part of our sponsorship, we’re giving away complementary conference registrations to three entrants of the IIRC’s 3MT® Competition. The competition is open to all New Zealand Māori, Pacific and indigenous international students enrolled in a PhD at a tertiary institution, with deadline for entries being 22 October. Find out more about the 3MT® Competition.

IIRC is the biennial international conference organised by Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga, New Zealand’s Māori Centre for Research Excellence.

With the theme of Indigenous Futures, IIRC is focused on sharing premiere Māori and Indigenous knowledge, research and scholarship. Attendees will enjoy a range of pre-conference workshops, keynotes, paper presentations, posters, movies and performances.
