Unfortunately Hon. Steven Joyce can no longer speak at the NZAS conference on Monday April 16. We are pleased that Hon. David Carter (Minister for Primary Industries, Minister of Local Goverment) has agreed to speak on behalf of Mr Joyce. David Shearer (Leader of the Labour Party, Spokesperson for Science and Innovation) will also speak at the conference.

The conference is targeted at emerging scientists, their existing and potential employers, future emerging scientists, policy makers and politicians.

Registration for the conference is now closed.

The final conference program and speaker information can be downloaded.

This part of the conference

This part of the conference was very disappointing. David Carter was dreadful; reading a pre-prepared speech, then not taking questions. David Shearer was more engaging as a speaker, but didn't say anything!
