Does your business want a smart and enthusiastic student to help with R&D, at minimal cost?

Callaghan Innovation is now inviting businesses to apply for R&D Experience grants.

Businesses get $7,200 for employing an undergraduate student over their summer break (November to February). Students can be studying science, technology, engineering, design or business.

Your business gets the benefit of increased R&D capacity while helping New Zealand undergraduate students gain skills and experience in commercial research.

We have made some significant improvements this year, most notably around reducing the application form, providing more detailed advice to applicants, and broadening the types of students that are eligible for a placement. 

Contact Callaghan Innovation to discuss if you are eligible and how this grant could help you before making your application.

This can be done through your Callaghan Innovation or Regional Business Partner account manager, or if you are new to Callaghan Innovation, through your local Regional Business Partner. If you are unsure who to contact, call 0800 4 CALLAGHAN.
