About the Programme

2020 has been full of unexpected events. Some of those events have forced us all to expand and innovate – not just within ourselves but also in respect to our jobs and wider industries. At Aware Group, we constantly strive to bring new and emerging technologies into play with our customers to both support areas such as health and safety, quality control, and job creation, as well as facilitate improvements to existing services.

The events of this year have only proven to accelerate some of these needs and digitise human-controlled aspects of certain occupations that were previously done by human hands.

We want to help New Zealand innovate in 2020 – so we’ve teamed up with Rocos to help make this happen.
