Te Urungi: Innovating Aotearoa events schedule
While we hope to return to face to face delivery of Te Urungi, the COVID-19 escalation makes this uncertain. To prepare for all eventualities, we’re designing the online format for Te Urungi to create the best possible experience for participants.
Te Urungi began its journey in Te Whanganui-a-Tara the Wellington region on 30 April – 2 May 2021. There will be Te Urungi events in a total of 14 regions across the motu as part of this nationwide series. There will also be online events.
It’s expected that most events will be held in 2021.There is some flexibility with this timing to ensure that we can be responsive to each community. It’s possible that some may take place in early 2022.
Teams are encouraged to attend the event in the region where they are based. Te Urungi is more than just a funding events series. The ambition is to build on the connections formed during regional events to nurture an ongoing, collaborative innovation community.
The dates and venues for each region will be added as they are confirmed. You can express your interest in your preferred region to receive email updates. Please note, you will still need to register to attend an event. Expressing your interest does not guarantee a place at a Te Urungi event.
