The commitment required reflects the invaluable experience and opportunities this course provides.
KiwiNet’s Rewa is an extension of the successful Australian ON Prime programme, which has trained more than 4000 publicly funded researchers, and will be facilitated by ON Prime’s Ian Storie and David Burt.
Rewa is proudly supported by the Science for Technological Innovation (SfTI), one of New Zealand's 11 National Science Challenges.
Its mission is to enhance New Zealand’s capacity to use physical sciences and engineering for economic growth.

“The core idea of our project has changed dramatically. It didn't really meet the needs of our customers. We wish that we had learned what we learned here 4 years ago when we started out.”
“We were challenged about the core elements of our idea and encouraged to think bigger which created new questions, new opportunities and new hypotheses to validate or discard. The exposure to criticism and a willingness to reflect on that and embrace it made us stronger, more thoughtful and more resilient as a team, and our idea a better fit to the outside world.”
