This is the latest update from NZAS.
If you haven't seen it, the latest NZSR is available online to paid-up members. (Many of you will have received the hard copy.)
The NZSR includes a President's column that serves also as my AGM address.
The current issue also contains our ideas for a major renewal of the New Zealand Science system.
To highlight that, we've just released the document publicly with an updated version. I'd like to thank Past President Craig Stevens for taking the lead on the development of the Call for Renewal, and for seeking and incorporating feedback. What is perhaps most important, is a role for public discourse, debate and transparency during a time when recent reviews suggest there may be an opportunity to give Aotearoa New Zealand the science system it deserves.
We encourage you to check on what we're thinking and doing via our news page and twitter feed (which is a public microblog, even if you're not on twitter). With the Government's Budget Day this Thursday, there's sure to be more to say soon – we'll a glimpse of the post-COVID science funding trajectory.
Enjoy the weekend reading!
