Our funding

The Auckland Bioengineering Institute is supported by external research grants primarily from the New Zealand Foundation for Research Science and Technology (FRST) and the Health Research Council of New Zealand (HRCNZ), together with the Marden Fund and Centres of Research Excellence scheme administered by the Royal Society of New Zealand (RSNZ).

Institute members also hold international grants, in particular from the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Wellcome Trust, the European Framework 7 funding programme and the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

Finally, the institute has a significant stream of commercial funding from research contracts, consulting and sales of instrumentation and software licences. These activities are managed by the University’s commercial arm, Auckland UniServices Ltd.
