Government Support for New Zealand Participants
The Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment (MBIE) has assigned €1 million to help New Zealand organisations participate in the Pre-construction Phase. MBIE called for Expressions of Interest to enable pre-selection of organisations with capability and resources to meet work package requirements. Submissions for the EOI closed on 3 December 2012. Pre-qualified organisations that are aligned with an established work package consortium will then be invited to bid for 50% co-funding from government, to support their engagement.
New Zealand held a Stakeholder Awareness Briefing for the SKA Pre-construction Phase in Wellington on 14 August 2012. This provided a project update and overview of recent developments to support A-NZ science and industry engagement. The materials presented can be downloaded in Microsoft Powerpoint format.
