The Foundation for Research, Science and Technology (Tūāpapa Rangahau Pūtaiao in Māori) was a Crown Entity of New Zealand, established by the Foundation for Research, Science, and Technology Act 1990.
It had the stated mission of "investing for results from research, science and technology to deliver greater prosperity, security and opportunities to all New Zealanders".
In 2011 the Foundation for Research, Science and Technology merged with the Ministry of Research, Science and Technology (MoRST) to form the new Ministry of Science and Innovation (MSI), which took over the policy and investment functions of both agencies.
MSI became fully operational on 1 February 2011, at which point MoRST and the Foundation for Research, Science and Technology were disestablished.
