PUKUmahi! roadmap for engagement with Māori

The NETwork! project is committed to ongoing dialogue with Māori in a way that honours the Treaty of Waitangi.  Therefore, we have developed this framework to guide the project.  Kawa (guiding principles) provide a frame of reference for project governance and tikanga (cultural protocols) ensure that we adhere to kawa. A traffic light system shows the progress we have made and what we hope to achieve.

Green: process, role or partnership is established.

Yellow: process, role or partnership currently in development.

Red: process, role or partnership yet to be established.

The arrows represent roads of input.  Sometimes these are unidirectional (input is only one-way) and some are bidirectional (both hubs informing each other).



Last updated 07/11/2019:

We are committed to this framework and will update this page with progress periodically, honestly showing where we have progressed and where we have slipped. The next update will occur before 1st May 2020.


Data Governance – Data Management Committee (DMC)

Description: Refers to matters relating to the Data Management Committee.

Why has this light changed?

We have identified a couple things that need addressing:

  • We are currently reviewing the DMCs constitution and the role of the researchers on the DMC, including ex officio roles only.
  • We are investigating the repatriation of NETwork! data from the European Phenome-Genome Archive to an Aotearoa-based archive.
