Our people have a wealth of expertise in areas ranging from innovation to economic impact analysis. We work with industry, government agencies and other organisations to enhance productivity and contribute to sustainable business. We aspire to develop and deliver industry-driven research projects assuring quality outcomes and transfer of knowledge in an effective and appropriate manner; develop collaboration with existing local, national and international partners.

Our efforts actively explore opportunities to further align our business practices with societal needs and expectations, helping to drive long-term sustainability and shareholder value; seek out and support effective collaborations and partnerships with agencies, institutions and industry in the Waikato Region; promote academic research to further strengthen the Region and pursue publication in high quality journals.

The Institute’s current strengths relate to agribusiness and particularly supply chains, financial analysis and business performance, business impact analysis, innovation and the business of health.
