eResearch NZ 2022:

eResearch NZ 2022 (eRNZ 22) will take place from 9-11 February 2022 in Ōtautahi Christchurch and online. We’ll deliver an in-person programme at Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha University of Canterbury (UC) with an online option for remote participation.

Note: eRNZ 22 may shift completely online if New Zealand Alert Level restrictions in early 2022 prevent domestic travel or large gatherings in person. Any changes to programme format will be communicated to registered delegates as soon as possible.

2022 Theme

Our theme for eRNZ 22 is Building Capability Together | Waihanga Āheitanga Kotahitanga. Each word reflects the diverse range of perspectives, communities, and Mātauranga Māori approaches that are layered within Aotearoa New Zealand’s research landscape. Visit our Submissions page to learn more.

Responding to NZ’s Covid-19 Alert Level changes

We are still hopeful we can host eResearch NZ 2022 next February as a hybrid event with in-person attendance in Ōtautahi Christchurch and online attendance for remote participants. However, we recognise New Zealand’s Alert Level restrictions and Covid-response efforts remain a dynamic situation. So, we’ve begun looking into how we may shift the conference to a fully online format if needed. We’ll be making a final format decision and announcement before the summer break in December. We wanted to share this update with you now so that you have some certainty that the event will go on (rather than be postponed or cancelled), and that we’re committed to making it an engaging and memorable experience no matter what form it takes. If you have any questions, please get in touch
