Otago Polytechnic


Otago Polytechnic is part of the metro group of six Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics who share the same vision and purpose, including using our knowledge and expertise to benefit our communities.

In order to make this vision a reality, the metro group has developed a funding initiative in the form of a ‘research voucher’. If your business is a small-to-medium-sized enterprise (SME) or not-for-profit organisation, and you have a problem that needs solving, a question that needs answering, or an idea that needs development, a research voucher may be available to help fund your research and development.
