richard blaikie 2015Research makes a difference: to our lives, to our economy, to our society and to our environment. At the University of Otago we have a strong history of research and scholarship from our foundation in 1869 and we are proud to be one of New Zealand's most research intensive universities.

Our research is relevant, innovative and connected. Relevant, because it addresses today's concerns while looking ahead to tomorrow's unimagined possibilities. Innovative, because it solves practical and theoretical problems in novel and creative ways. Connected, because it links our people and their knowledge to families and communities, to business and government, both here and globally.

You can learn all about this for yourself by reading our annual research publication He Kitenga and our Research Action Plan, viewing the work of our Research Centres and Groups or contacting one of our many experts or Leading Thinkers.
