    Shooting for the Stars

The efforts of two consortiums, one led by Venture Southland and one led by Alexandra-based Bodeker Scientific could result in Otago and Southland hosting two new research institutes. The groups have put in applications as part of the Government’s Regional Research Institute initiative which aims to increase knowledge capital in the country’s regions to drive economic growth.
