Crazy and Ambitious Conference. This is not your usual National Science Conference
May 8, 2017 @ 8:00 am - May 10, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
A piquant mixture of stretchy science, disruptive technologies, Māori and indigenous knowledge, business and industry, government and NGOs. We look forward to hearing your ideas (even if they do sound a bit crazy!), ambitions, progress, promises, experiences and future plans at this, our first national meeting.

Restoring resilience in freshwater ecosystems
