2019 ITP Research  Symposium

The theme of the symposium is community-centred research, demonstrating the key role that New Zealand’s institutes of technology and polytechnics (ITPs) play in ensuring that research has a tangible impact and benefits our communities. We will run a single-stream symposium with an associated exhibition, maximising opportunities for networking between researchers, industry and community stakeholders. We are aiming to run a zero-waste symposium, without single-use plastics and limiting the use of paper.

Keep up-to-date with symposium news including announcements about keynote speakers by following us on  Twitter @2019ITP.


10 February 2019: Abstracts must be submitted
28 February 2019: Draft programme will be available and submitters will be notified whether they have been accepted, after peer-review of abstracts.
