The Big Q is the result of a collaborative project between four units of the University of Auckland: Politics and International Relations, Media and Communication, the Faculty of Arts Information Technology Services, and the University’s Libraries and Learning Services, called the Project for Media in the Public Interest (PMPI).
The goal of the project is to connect audiences to informed dialogue about science, economics, arts and politics. Academics from across disciplines at the University of Auckland, across America, Europe, Australia and other universities discuss their research on important topics.
