A special edition of the Marsden Fund Update highlights the 2019 funding round and inaugural awards for two large interdisciplinary projects. It also celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the Marsden Fund Te Pūtea Rangahau a Marsden!
We have reflected on the enormous impact the Fund has had on promoting excellent investigator-led research in Aotearoa over that period, and also celebrated many of the individual and collective research successes that underlie that impact.
We looked to the rohe regions to present a series of 25 talks and profiles of the Fund's researchers. It gave us an opportunity to connect our work programme and researchers with hapori communities from Whangārei to Invercargill.
This year’s Update includes a special feature, Ka mua, ka muri: looking back in order to move forward, which takes a glimpse at a small selection of the excellent research and researchers supported by the Fund over the twenty-five years.
