What will happen to fundamental research under your policy? Will it have to stop?
There’s a lot of low-quality, investigator-led research being undertaken by universities that is driven by the perverse incentives of the Performance Based Research Fund – too much emphasis on publishing journal papers and not enough credit for creating real-world impact. We would rather spend the money on research that makes a difference to New Zealand’s people, our environment, and our economy.
