Australia 2030: Prosperity through Innovation
Innovation and Science Australia (ISA) | 2 February, 2018
The ISA has released the 2030 strategic plan for innovation, science and research in Australia, that includes 30 recommendations for improving the economic future of Australia framed in the context of five strategic imperatives: education, industry, government, research & development and culture & ambition.
The plan is looking to advise the government on how to generate and capture more of the benefits of innovation. The 18-month review across the ecosystem also highlights the role of startups as job creators and economic stimulators.
The plan has got mixed reaction, some saying it’s more of a sketch with detours, dead ends and red lights. But at least it does provide a launching pad for more discussion and debate.
