This year's season of LATE at the Museum events welcomes a year-long investigation into the theme of innovation – featuring panel discussions with this country’s leading innovators and music by our top performers.
The panel features Dr Helen Anderson alongside inventor, social entrepreneur and ‘New Zealander of the Year’, Ray Avery.
Dr Helen Anderson is chief executive of The Ministry of Research Science and Technology. She sees her role as helping research, science and technology improve New Zealand. Helen has played a central role in determining high level science priorities, enhancing New Zealand's research infrastructure, and encouraging greater private sector research and development.
Avery was recently announced as ‘New Zealander of the Year’ by Prime Minister John Key, recognising his contribution to the nation through science and technology. Avery is the founder of independent development agency Medicine Mondiale, which creates low-cost solutions to health issues in the developing world. He’s also a strong believer in Kiwi ingenuity, and devotes much of his energy to helping New Zealand realise it’s a ‘country of geniuses’. View Panellists
