Callaghan Innovation, a Crown entity of New Zealand, has the task of making New Zealand business more innovative. It was established in February 2013 and Industrial Research Limited, a Crown Research Institute, was merged into it. The institute takes its name from Sir Paul Callaghan, a prominent New Zealand physicist who died in 2012.
On 6 January 2014 the departments of carbohydrate chemistry and high temperature superconductors were ceded to Victoria University of Wellington, being renamed the Ferrier and Robinson Research Institutes respectively. This resulted in a transfer of 55 staff.
