The Kiwi Innovation Network (KiwiNet) is a consortium of Universities and Crown Research Institutes who are dedicated to taking a collaborative approach to research commercialisation. The consortium consists of Plant and Food Research, Callaghan Innovation, AgResearch, Otago Innovation, Lincoln University, University of Canterbury, Viclink, WaikatoLink and AUT Enterprises Ltd. Through KiwiNet, we seek to increase the scale and impact of scientific and technology based innovation with the aim of providing greater economic benefits to New Zealand. KiwiNet does not carry out research commercialisation itself, instead acting as a focal point for collaboration and co-ordination between those who do commercialise research. KiwiNet's role is to empower people who are involved in research commercialisation by helping them to access the tools, connections, investment and support they need. By collaborating on projects, combining capability and sharing networks, we, at KiwiNet, believe that we can better leverage the limited resources available for commercialisation, and help one another achieve better commercial outcomes for New Zealand.
