The Kitmap project undertook a survey of research infrastructures across a set of Aotearoa New Zealand's government-funded research organisations, comprising the Crown Research Institutes (CRIs), the National eScience Infrastructure (NeSI), and Callaghan Innovation. The purpose of this study was to understand the composition of the infrastructure portfolio, how it is accessed, governed and funded, and the types of research it enables. This information will inform future design of the research, science and innovation system.

Key findings:

  • New Zealand scientists can access a wide range of infrastructures.
  • Many but not all research infrastructures can be accessed by external users.
  • Government agencies and other CRIs are key external users.
  • Most infrastructure is self-funded by institutions.
