Professionals Australia has launched ‘Still the Clever Country?’, a new campaign to advocate the value of science, innovation and R&D in Australia.
Our campaign presents two significant reports and a series of fact sheets on the issues that face the future of science in Australia.
In our first report Still the Clever Country?, we present the insights and experiences of the science workforce. In Realising Innovation through Science and R&D, we provide a blueprint for dealing with workplace and structural issues in science.
We launch this campaign at a time when the value of science and R&D are in question. Now more than ever, it is vital that science comes together to convince decision-makers that investment in science is an economic enabler that will deliver innovation and productivity, so that Australia remains a clever country.
