Education and training a focus for innovation agenda

7 Dec 2015

An ongoing commitment to national research infrastructure, a focus on taking Australia’s world class research from lab to everyday life and additional support to encourage Australian students to embrace the digital age earlier in life are cornerstones of the Turnbull Government’s innovation agenda.

Minister Birmingham said new investment in national scale research infrastructure as part of the National Innovation and Science Agenda was essential if Australia was to build its reputation as a centre for innovation and world-class research.

“The Turnbull Government will invest $2.3 billion in new, sustainable funding over 10 years for national scale research infrastructure, including $1.5 billion for the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS),” Minister Birmingham said.

“Ongoing National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy funding from 2017‑18 provides much needed long-term certainty, which drives collaboration between 35,000 researchers, government and industry, and supports research in areas like food production, health and sustainable cities.
