New Zealand science minister Paul Goldsmith has announced the government will spend $17 million to increase long-term access for the country's scientists at the Australian Synchrotron in Melbourne.

In a statement outlining details, Goldsmith said that $7m would be spent on constructing new beamlines at the research facility. This amount will be matched by universities and government research agencies that are members of the NZ Synchrotron Group.

He said the government would allocate a further $10m over nine years to “secure preferential access to the synchrotron for Kiwi scientists”.
