Hoe ki angitū - Waka Kotahi Innovation Fund Webinar

Waka KotahiDate: 2PM, Wednesday 1 February 2023

Waka Kotahi is inviting the sector to attend a webinar on Wednesday 1 February 2023 in which Lee McKenzie, Manager Future Transport and Leone Murphy, Innovation Fund Manager will provide more detail regarding Hoe ki angitū - Innovation Fund, and the round two challenges. 

Register now via Zoom

The three challenges for round two are:

  • How can we make roadworks safer and smarter to protect workers and other users of the road network?
  • How can we reduce the impact of our rapidly growing urban freight task and door-to-door delivery on our urban environments and people?
  • How can we improve the safe and efficient movement of people and goods that are using different modes of transport in the same space, by making better use of new technologies and data?


Hoe ki angitū has been set up to:

  • Catalyse the actions needed to solve some of our most critical transport problems
  • Enable innovators with the capabilities they need, but cannot access on their own
  • Accelerate innovation by breaking down barriers and providing support across the transportation ecosystem

The aim of the Fund is to support the private and non-government sectors to develop, and accelerate, innovative solutions that will help solve some of our big transport challenges. Innovators from all areas are invited to apply – this includes community-based organisations, iwi, start-ups, research institutions as well as domestic and international companies.

Round two applications open on 20 February and close on 24 March 2023.

This webinar will be an opportunity to ask questions about the Fund and the round two challenges.
