Other Industries

Finally, there remain one or two industries for which research associations have not yet been formed but which function under a scheme introduced in 1952 whereby, operating on the same basis for finance and research programmes as the research associations, the work is undertaken in one of the laboratories of the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research by one or more scientists allocated to each group. Such a group is operating for the bacon-curing industry, and industries in Auckland have formed somewhat similar groups for fuel technology and instrument technology in association with the Auckland Industrial Development Laboratories.
