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

Callaghan Innovation is inviting businesses to apply for R&D Experience grants from 18 May 2016. Businesses get $7,200 (figure updated 17 May 2016) for employing undergraduate student over their summer break (November to February).

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