Jarrod Haar appointed to Marsden Fund Council

​Business School Professor Jarrod Haar joins a new cohort of prominent academics appointed to the Marsden Fund Council by Research, Science and Innovation Minister Hon Dr Megan Woods.

Jarrod will bring his teaching and Research supervision experience to the Council as the new convener of the Economics and Human Behavioural Sciences panel, which starts this month.

The Minister recently announced the appointment and is excited about the incoming expertise complementing the strengths of current Council members.

“The Marsden Fund supports our top researchers to conduct excellent research across science, mathematics, engineering, social science and the humanities, and is an integral part in growing New Zealand as an innovation-led economy, and boosting our R&D investment." Dr Woods said.

“The new appointees will use their experience in their respected fields to develop the strategic direction of the Marsden Fund and to evaluate proposals.”
