On June 4th, 2015 we are opening the doors of the Gracefield Innovation Quarter – Callaghan Innovation’s research and development premises in Lower Hutt.

Here some of New Zealand’s most innovative companies work alongside some of the country’s best scientists and technicians to find solutions to business challenges, identify opportunities and create and develop internationally competitive products and services.

You’ll hear about some small privately-owned enterprises we’ve helped as well as major international and national companies. Most importantly, if you are in business and looking to use technology to get ahead, we invite you to come and discuss your business challenges with us.
