Projects

Current projects
Projects currently underway at Bodeker Scientific include:
  • EWERAM: Extreme Weather Event Real-Time Attribution Machine.
  • MAPM: Particulate emissions maps for cities.
Large-scale projects
Bodeker Scientific is also leading, or has led, the development of large (>$10 million) multi-institutional funding proposals. While some of these proposals have been outside our core expertise, these initiatives align with our core purpose of conducting and supporting excellent research that benefits New Zealand. These  include:
  • A successful proposal to obtain $17 million in funding through the Regional Research Institute (RRI) fund to establish the Centre for Space Science Technology, now trading as Xerra. Domestic partners included AgResearch, Callaghan Innovation, Met Ocean Solutions, Rocket Lab, University of Canterbury, University of Otago and Wake Science.
  • An as yet unsuccessful $9.9 million proposal through the MBIE Endeavour Programme fund titled Assessing global climate engineering impacts on New Zealand’s economy, environment, and society. Domestic partners include University of Canterbury, NIWA, Landcare Research, Plant and Food Research, AgResearch, and Lincoln University. International partners include ETH Zurich, Physikalisch-Meteorologisches Observatorium (Switzerland), and San Diego State University. More information on that proposal is available here.
  • A $11.6 million proposal submitted in response to the MBIE (Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment) Data Science Investment request for proposals titled Te Taiao Kaititiro: ecosystem-based data collection and analytics for native species protection. Domestic partner organisations include Landcare Research, University of Canterbury, The University of Auckland, Iris Data Science, Cacophony, Lynker Analytics, Dragonfly Data Science, Massey University, Boffa Miskell Ltd, Victoria University of Wellington, and Tauahika Ltd.
Bodeker Scientific has a wide range of tools and processes to support the development of proposals at this scale and welcomes expressions of interest from organisations looking to partner with Bodeker Scientific to develop large-scale proposal.
