Abstract: The New Zealand commercial forestry sector has been built on a century of innovation, much of it underpinned by research. The results of this research filled a knowledge gap and moving from output to implementation was a relatively linear progression. In the modern era of research and research funding, there is increasing scrutiny of research programmes by both public and industry funding bodies. Effective means of ensuring that research creates the desired impacts are required. As the problems that we as a sector grapple with become more complex and involve a greater number of stakeholders, the traditional technology transfer approaches that have served us well in the past may become less effective. In this paper, I present a personal view on how we as a sector can become more effective at turning research outputs into positive outcomes.
