Two representatives from Industry New Zealand, Mr David Penny and  Mr Mark Turney, attended the 28/3/03 Community ICT meeting and outlined the support available via Technology New Zealand.

Support from Technology New Zealand covers three broad areas:

  • To assist companies to find possible solutions to technical problems and help companies plan technology projects through access to information
  • To assist with funds to undertake focused technology projects.
  • To assist in developing people with relevant technical skills and the technical skills within a business

Technology New Zealand applies certain criteria when assessing projects for suitability and eligibility for funding. In particular, funding of Projects is assessed against:

  • "Stretch" - The uniqueness of the opportunity 
  • Capabilities - The ability to retain the Intellectual Property within the business
  • Endurance - The enduring benefit to the South Waikato District / Company

Applications for funding under the Technology NZ program is closing in the very near future (mid April). If you have a great idea that needs funding please download both of the following documents and submit your funding application. 

  • Technology NZ Concept/Guidelines Document (MS-Word format)
  • Technology NZ Funding Application Template (MS-Word format)
