Get off the Grass: Kickstarting New Zealand's Innovation Economy
|Author:||Shaun Hendy; Paul Callaghan|
"Callaghan and Hendy have highlighted a critical issue--decades in which we have underinvested in both public and private sector investment in technological research and innovation. This is a welcome and timely contribution to the critical debate on how we are to become a more wealthy and healthy society." --Professor Sir Peter Gluckman, Chief Science Advisor to the Prime Minister
Professor Shaun Hendy is deputy director of the MacDiarmid Institute and an Industry and Outreach Fellow at Industrial Research Ltd. In 2012 he won the Callaghan Medal and the Prime Minister's Science Media Communication Prize. Professor Sir Paul Callaghan (1947-2012; GNZM, FRS, FRSNZ) was one of New Zealand's most celebrated scientists. He was the 2011 Kiwibank New Zealander of the Year.
