The Big Picture
Supernodes are sectors with strong global growth opportunities where the region has existing strengths and capabilities. Christchurch has catalysed strong eco-systems around each Supernode, aligning and connecting students, iwi, education providers, industry, and government to accelerate opportunities and growth.
This is about a progressive, prosperous and sustainable future. Supernodes are facilitating an innovative mindset among our population, our education sector and our industries, aligning talent and education goals, and encouraging cross-sector collaboration.
The talent pipeline to support is geared up and growing. Canterbury hosts three world-class university campuses in the top two per cent in the world, and the largest ITP in the South Island, offering programmes ranked in the top 100 globally.
With world-class opportunities for work integrated learning, pathway programmes, joint ventures, increased innovation and R&D, and talent and business attraction, Supernodes are transforming and future-proofing the Canterbury economy to stay globally relevant.
