Abstract

The aim of this TPK scoping report is to give insight into the extent to which it is possible to map the Māori economy from a High Value Manufacturing & Service Sector perspective. The intention is to determine what the current system is able to offer Māori business from a research, science and innovation perspective and to what extent Māori enterprises are ready to, are capable of, or have the desire or need to access those offerings. We also wish to better understand how discourse abour R&D intersects with what is known already about how New Zealand enterprises succeed and whether such models are applicable to Māori enterprises. Our concluding observation is that we suspect that developing a national innovation system that is comprehensive, flexible and capable of responding to an indigenous economy is ground-breaking from an international perspective.
