NZi3 Industry Partnerships
The establishment of NZi3 would not have been possible without the support of the New Zealand Government, the ICT sector and many other Canterbury organisations. NZi3's four founding partners are IBM, HP, Jade Software Corporation and Tait Electronics. There are also a number of other partners who are contributing to NZi3 on varying levels.
NZi3 provides its industry partners with access to ICT research capabilities across all UC colleges, departments, Research Centres and Research Institutes. This pan-institutional approach provides industry partners with applied research capabilities in both core technology disciplines as well as new aspects in the ICT space such as the convergence of technology, mobility and human interactions as part of the digital business shift.
This interdisciplinary research collaboration is a key advantage for industry engagement with NZi3. Our ability to combine disciplines and capabilities is vital to meet the challenges of both leading-edge research and the external demands of industry. NZi3 acts as an access point for UC’s expertise and facilitates the flow of interactions between researchers and industry to tackle specific industry challenges.
