The Future for Scientists in New Zealand: NZAS conference 2016

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the New Zealand Association of Scientists, our annual conference will bring together some of New Zealand's best thinkers to discuss the future for scientists in New Zealand, and what we can learn from the past. What do scientific careers look like in 2016, how have they changed, and how should they change in order to keep pace with international trends? Are we doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past, or can we learn from what has - and has not - worked in the science system of the past?
