Getting our research priorities right

‘There is nothing revolutionary in the nine priorities for Australia. If I tell you that food, soil and water, transport, cyber-security, resources, energy, advanced manufacturing, environmental change and health and are important, you probably wouldn’t disagree. But now we have articulated them. We have recognised specific challenges within them. We are expecting departments and agencies of the Federal Government to act on them. And I hope we can give both the nation, and the research sector, the confidence that talented people are at work on critical projects, with the support for the long-haul they deserve.’

(Chief Scientist Ian Chubb, The Conversation, 6.7.15)
