Australian Government, Have your say on the future of science in Australia, science.gov.au, 22 June 2015

The Australian Government wants ideas and feedback from industry, the research and education sectors and the wider community on a long term strategy for boosting Australia’s capability in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).  Vision for a Science Nation – Responding to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics: Australia’s Future.

The Minister for Industry and Science, the Hon Ian Macfarlane MP, and the Minister for Education and Training, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP, have released a consultation paper, to stimulate discussion. The paper responds to the key issues raised by the Chief Scientist, Professor Ian Chubb, in his report.

Feedback on the paper will assist with the development of a national strategy to foster STEM skills and knowledge – a strategy which will support the Australian Government’s vision for a future in which Australia is a leading nation in STEM.

The Australian Government has also established nine new Science and Research priorities to build capability in key areas and guide future investment in STEM.
