Our research focus seeks to make a positive contribution to the environmental, social, cultural and economic development of New Zealand and the global community.
Our externally funded sustainability research projects have increased in number from four in 2012, five in 2013, to six in 2014. While they represent a small number of projects, there is an increasing trend.
In 2014, AUT produced 77 sustainability-focused research outputs which included journal articles, conference contributions and chapters/sections in books.
Dr Chris Pook from the School of Science is researching the effects of pesticides on bees. Dr Pook is using the beehive located on the AUT City Campus to develop and test a monitoring system that can be used in the field. The system includes scales and temperature sensors and is powered by a small solar panel.
