The Southern Institute of Technology | Te Pūkenga was proud to host the 2022 ITP Research Symposium in Invercargill from 30 November to 2 December. After two years of online symposia because of Covid-19, it was fantastic to be able to hold this event kanohi ki te kanohi, and make use of our new SIT Centre for Creative Industries: Te Rau o te Hui. Our ability to come together was particularly welcome as this was the first symposium held after all ITPs formally became business divisions of Te Pūkenga.
This year’s conference showcased applied research from across Aotearoa New Zealand and attracted 153 presentations, making it the busiest ITP symposium to date. Presenters hailed from 15 former ITPs, and delivered a diverse mix of traditional research presentations, displays of creative practice, research posters and other formats. We also hosted in-person meetings of new and established applied-research communities of practice, and presented pre-recorded talks from those unable to attend in person. You can read about all the presentations that took place at the symposium in the Book of Abstracts, available at https://doi.org/10.34074/proc.2207.
