Nurturing curiosity and engagement in the advancement of science and arts in Otago and Southland.
The Otago Institute is a Regional Constituent Organisation of the Royal Society of New Zealand. In many ways our activities reflect the values of the RSNZ, but more importantly a firm commitment by our members to community outreach and engagement. It is our goal to provide timely, relevant, and qualified expert information to people in regional communities in order to enhance their understanding of research, give them the tools that they can bring to bear on issues that impact their lives, and thereby improve their awareness of the importance of research to their happiness and well-being as well as that of their community and country.
