Callaghan Innovation

We activate innovation and help businesses grow faster for a better New Zealand. We partner with ambitious businesses of all sizes, providing a range of innovation and research and development (R&D) services to suit each stage of growth.

Our people – including more than 200 of New Zealand’s leading scientists and engineers – empower innovators by connecting people, opportunities and networks, and providing tailored technical solutions, skills and capability development programmes, and grants co-funding.

We also enhance the operation of New Zealand's innovation ecosystem, working closely with government partners, Crown Research Institutes, and other organisations that help increase business investment in R&D and innovation.

We operate across New Zealand from four urban offices and a regional partner network in a further 12 locations.


One of Asia Pacific's leading independent advisory, design and engineering consultancies, we empower innovation to help our clients shape communities, optimise their assets and streamline their operations. Beca has been delivering Industry 4.0 solutions across New Zealand, Australia and Singapore for over 5 years, using our own practical experience to drive digital transformation to significantly improve business performance.

Our employee-ownership model remains key to our future. It underpins our commitment to building and sustaining long-term relationships with our clients, it helps drive our positive, purpose-driven and growth-oriented culture, it sets us apart from our competitors, and it gives meaning to our social contract.

While our experience has been 100 years in the making, it is the fresh talent we're nurturing, the innovative thinking we're developing and the connections that we're forging that get us most excited for the future.
