NEW ZEALAND - Minister for Research, Science and Technology, Wayne Mapp, has opened the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Researchs new premises at the Viaduct Harbour in Auckland.

“NIWA’s marine aquaculture is pioneering, particularly in the cultivating of paua. This is how whole new markets and products are developed. Their work in oceanographic and climate research is among the most important scientific research of the 21st century. I’m sure they will keep delivering that here, right by the ocean, one of the main focuses of their work,” Dr Mapp said.

The move to the refitted historic City Market building on Market Place from landlocked Khyber Pass Road brings NIWA closer to many of their key clients.

“The choice of the Viaduct is an expression of confidence in the future, and its profile in the science community. It gives an opportunity to showcase the importance of science, and particularly NIWA’s role in oceanographic and climate research.”

“The role that NIWA has in these areas is of global significance. To have members of the NIWA team among the group of scientists who received the Nobel Peace Prize is a great testament to the quality of the climate research.
