National security science and technology: policy and priorities

1 May 2018
Description

Science and technology innovation plays a core role in our nation’s security. As access to science and technological developments and ideas move from the realms of specialists in laboratories and on to the internet for public view, there is an increase in our nation’s vulnerability to technology-based threats.

The National Security Science and Technology Centre (NSSTC) was created to help Australia’s national security agencies collectively understand and prioritise their science and technology requirements, and to coordinate research and development to address these priorities by fostering partnerships between Australia’s national security agencies and academics, industry and other potential science and technology providers.

The aim of this document is to outline Australia’s current national security science and technology priorities and coordination of efforts, to best take advantage of investment in science and technology and address gaps in immediate and future national security capability.
