For more than 80 years, Massey University has helped shape the lives and communities of people in New Zealand and around the world. Its forward-thinking spirit, research-led teaching, and cutting-edge discoveries make Massey New Zealand’s defining university.

 We are also committed to creating a unique university culture at Massey that celebrates learning, enterprise and entrepreneurship; ranging from knowledge exchange, knowledge transfer and the commercialisation of research, to skills enhancement and community engagement more broadly.

 As a one of New Zealand's largest universities with more than 34,000 students we welcome the opportunity to work with the PIRIC collaborators to help achieve a larger proportion of knowledge intensive and high‐value activities in our primary industries, that are critical to making New Zealand regions more resilient to the looming threats created by technological change, globalisation, demographic change and climate change.

We were BCC and now we’re The Factory. Why? Because there’s a history of research and innovation attached to the building we work from. Our building was once an actual Dairy Factory, way back in 1926. Since then it’s been a place that not only created great dairy products but also served as a centre for research, and innovation.  Soon this became BCC as we further developed into what is The Factory today.  We’re a place to help support entrepreneurs and grow businesses, a headquarters for our various programmes and a co-working space to meet, work and collaborate. View More →
