New guidelines will be out in 2026
Wintec participates in the New Zealand Government’s Performance-Based Research Fund (PBRF) mechanism. Wintec performance has improved markedly between the 2012 and 2018 Quality Evaluations (QEs), with highlights being a 61 percent increase in the number of researcher portfolios submitted and 127 percent increase in the number of portfolios receiving a rating. Our attainment in the External Research Income (ERI) component increased eight-fold, while Research Degree Completions (RDC) rose by 43 percent over the same period.
The purpose of the Performance-Based Research Fund (PBRF) is to increase the quality of research by ensuring that excellent research in the tertiary education sector is encouraged and rewarded. This means assessing the research performance of tertiary education organisations (TEOs) and then funding them on the basis of their performance.
There are nine changes that have been agreed to by Cabinet for implementation:
Wintec/Te Pūkenga has a variety of systems and services that we use to manage and communicate Wintec/Te Pūkenga's Research outputs. Some have restricted access via a login e.g. ROMS, but most are available publicly online e.g. Wintec Research Archive.
