The Sustainable Seas Science Leadership Team would like to advise that there is now an extension to the deadline for proposals for two of the five projects advertised in the Request for Proposals (RfP) for the Tangaroa Programme on 2 October 2015.
The two projects from the Tangaroa programme are:
- 3.1.2 Kaitiakitanga in practice in our marine environment
- 3.3.1 Understanding the relationship between Māori lore and law
The deadline for proposals for these two projects is now extended from 31 October 2015 to 10 February 2016.
The deadline for proposals for the Tangaroa project 3.1.1 Understanding kaitiakitanga in our marine environment and the Vision Mātauranga project remains 31 October 2015.
The rationale for the extension to the deadline date is twofold.
Firstly, the Sustainable Seas Board and Leadership Team is committed to enabling research in the Tangaroa programme that embodies a partnership approach that provides for co-design and co-development between researchers, iwi and hapū. In response to feedback from interested parties this extension provides more adequate time to:
- establish meaningful research partnerships within the case study area of Tasman / Golden Bay, and/or;
- enable the effective testing and application of research findings from existing partnerships in other regions to the environment, and iwi and hapū within the case study area.
Secondly, we note that given full proposals across the other programmes of the Challenge are to be finalised in December, an extension to the deadline for the two Tangaroa projects outlined above enables linkages with the other programmes to be maximised. Details of each project in the Challenge will be made available over the course of this time, and we encourage applicants to identify and explore linkages between the two Tangaroa projects with the other projects in the Challenge.
