This research centres and is led by Māori, to explore the development of EBM that is founded on, and informed by mātauranga and tikanga Māori.

Led by Shaun Awatere (Manaaki Whenua)

This research places Māori at its centre, and aims to promote and support Māori-led or partnered projects to enable direct benefits to those iwi and hapū involved.

These projects are:

  • Developing models that embody a harmonisation of mātauranga Māori and science, and enables tangata whenua- and rohe-specific approaches and outcomes
  • Enhancing and implementing mātauranga Māori to enable innovative governance and jurisdiction models at different scales, and recognises Māori rights and interests
  • Working collaboratively across projects to ensure a Te Ao Māori approach to research outputs and outcomes
