How does NZARI fund Antarctic Science?

NZARI funds world-leading Antarctic Science to find answers to the big questions that matter to everyone.


NZARI is primarily concerned with research into the impacts of global change on Antarctica (it’s climate, oceans, ice sheets and ecosystems) and in turn Antarctica’s impacts on the future well-being of New Zealand and beyond.

We are keen to fund research efforts in New Zealand, based on Antarctica and the Southern Ocean, that bring together new collaborations that will make major advances in our understanding. We do this through annual calls for focused scientific projects and through large-scale multidisciplinary collaborative programmes of research.
