Description of University of Auckland

The University of Auckland is New Zealand’s leading tertiary institution and largest university. It spans six campuses, has the largest university library complex in New Zealand and is the only New Zealand university that has both Engineering and Medical and Health Science faculties. This has enabled pioneering collaborations between medical and engineering researchers and resulted in the creation of the flagship Bioengineering Institute, internationally recognised for its sophisticated computer modelling of living organisms. The University is an international university and has formal exchange agreements with over 100 universities in 25 countries. Staff are appointed from many countries and we attract high quality undergraduate and postgraduate international students to study here from over 100 countries around the world. We are the only New Zealand member of Universitas 21, the Association of Pacific Rim Universities and Worldwide Universities Network. Through these networks there are many opportunities for staff and students to participate in international exchanges and attend international conferences. The University of Auckland is New Zealand’s largest research organisation with more than 13,000 staff and postgraduate students involved in fundamental and applied research. It generates around $230 million in annual research revenue, with over $30 million from international sources. The New Zealand Government operates a national research evaluation system, the Performance Based Research Fund (PBRF), which is similar to the British Research Exercise (RAE) but based on the evaluation of individual staff. All eight New Zealand universities and another 19 tertiary institutions participated in this exercise in 2012. In the most recent (2012) evaluation, the University of Auckland: •Had 35% of the top rated researchers in the whole country •Gained 33% of the funding based on research degree completions and 36% of the funding based on external research income •Gained 31% of the funding overall, thereby confirming its position as the nation’s premier research institution. Our research programmes range across all disciplines: from our Auckland Cancer Society Research Centre, which is a world leader in cancer drug development, to Education, where researchers are working towards increasing learning success in clusters of low achieving primary and secondary schools. We have a strong reputation for research in Life Sciences, Medicine, Social Sciences and Management, and are international research leaders in inductive (wireless) power transfer, computational physiology, and fetal and child health development. Centres of Research Excellence As well as having almost 50 research units, centres and institutes at departmental, faculty and University level, we host or co-host six national Centres of Research Excellence (CoREs) established by the Government to drive innovative, international research. These are: Maurice Wilkins Centre for Molecular Biodiscovery, which targets major disease groups –cancer, diabetes and infectious disease – affecting New Zealanders by discovering new therapies and diagnostics. The Medical Technologies CoRE, which applies bioengineering technologies to healthcare, producing new knowledge of physiological processes in health and disease, develops novel bio-instrumentation and computational physiological models, and designs innovative medical devices and technologies to improve healthcare and to create economic opportunities for New Zealand companies. Te Pūnaha Matatini - The Centre for Complex Systems and Network, which brings together New Zealand’s leading researchers in physics, economics, mathematics, biology, computer science, operations management, statistics, and social science to study complex systems and networks in the biosphere, the economy, and the marketplace. Brain Research New Zealand – Rangahau Roro Aotearoa , which unlocks the secrets of the ageing brain and develops new therapies and better clinical and community care to enhance brain health throughout life for all New Zealanders. Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga, New Zealand's Indigenous Centre of Research Excellence, which conducts research of relevance to Māori communities and is an important vehicle by which New Zealand continues to be a key player in global indigenour research and affairs.
Gravida, the National Centre for Growth and Development, which brings together leading scientists from six partner organisations across New Zealand to address a single overarching question: what makes a healthy start to life?

In addition, the University of Auckland is a partner in New Zealand’s remaining two CoREs, the MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology and the Dodd-Walls Centre for Photonic and Quantum Technologies. University of Auckland researchers are deputy directors of both of these CoREs. Commercialising research Auckland UniServices Limited is our commercial research and knowledge transfer company. It is the largest company of its kind in Australasia bringing income and new employment opportunities into the University and New Zealand, and works alongside world-class academics to identify, protect and develop discoveries with commercial potential, find business partners and commercialise IP. UniServices has an extensive portfolio of new technologies available for commercial licensing, and spin out companies for investment, based on over 400 new inventions and hundreds of new patents lodged in the last five years alone.
UniServices works with hundreds of national and international clients and attracts over $30 million of research income through our research offerings. UniServices also delivers customised education programmes to over 25,000 students each year in a multitude of countries. Across all of our business, more than 35% of UniServices' clients are international. Entrepreneurial ecosystem The University’s Business School has established an entrepreneurial ecosystem to foster young entrepreneurs to create start-up companies. It features two key competitions: Spark - an annual student led entrepreneurial challenge with categories ranging from new ideas through to fully developed products and business plans, and Chiasma - another student led initiative which encourages ideas, networking, careers and business in biotechnology.
