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).
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.
Researchers working under the BioHeritage Challenge umbrella have a strong presence at the conference. A number of our Challenge Party researchers will present on the following topics that are strongly linked to our Challenge:
Pre-conference workshop, Monday 12 November 9am – 4pm
How can we get better at kaumātua (elder)-led research? The BioHeritage Challenge will lead this discussion at one of IIRC's pre-conference workshops that is sponsored by all National Science Challenges.
