How Much Money Will Callaghan Innovation Waste?

Callaghan Innovation released its Statement of Intent through to 2016 the other day.

Have a read of it on their site and be amazed by the managing consulting buzzword utilisation.

It is interesting to note that when their monitoring agency, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, released a report saying that hardly anyone thinks the government has much to contribute on innovation, that I became aware of how much money is being put into Callaghan Innovation.

We should be very concerned because they consider themselves a key plank of the NZ Inc strategy. No good will come of this attempt at centrally planning innovation and R&D for New Zealand.
