2014 saw the establishment of The Industry Advisory Group (IAG). The IAG works with the Institute to provide advice on structures that will improve our interactions with New Zealand industry. In particular, the IAG advises on: mechanisms for the translation of research to industry; how to construct an interface with industry that allows our basic research directions to be guided by the concerns of industry; how to best interface with the new institutional structures that have been created to foster technology transfer and drive the application of basic research; how we can create more innovative and industry-ready graduates; and how to best interact with industry to participate in sector visioning that determines where the sector could be with the right resources, innovation, collaboration and planning.
