About the Research Forum:
The 5th biennial HRINZ Research Forum will be hosted by HRINZ’s Academic Branch on Thursday 11 April 2019. This is the first time in history that it will be held in the South Island.  Previous research forums were highly successful, facilitating strong links between practice and academia.

Sessions: The Forum will be divided into three distinct sessions

  • Plenary session: Professor Jarrod Haar & Christine Brotherton will present the latest research into Perpetual Guardian’s adoption of a four-day working week.
  • Academic Research Presentations: presentation of up to 3 submitted research papers.
  • Practitioner-Academic Presentations: presentation of up to 3 submitted papers. These presentations will comprise an overview of the topic of interest by the practitioner then an overview of the applicable theories, frameworks and research by the Academic.

Review process
The organising committee will notify authors of their papers success by 15 March. Papers will be published in a set of electronic proceedings made available to attendees in advance of the forum.
