AAMRI submission to the Innovation & Science Australia 2030 Strategic Plan Issues Paper

AAMRI submission to the Innovation & Science Australia 2030 Strategic Plan Issues Paper

The Australian Government has tasked Innovation and Science Australia with developing a strategic plan for the Australian innovation, science and research system out to 2030. The 2030 Strategic Plan will identify investment and infrastructure priorities and areas for consideration by government.

As part of the process for developing the 2030 Strategic Plan, Innovation and Science Australia released an Issues Paper for comment.

AAMRI’s submission in response to the Issues Paper puts forward four recommendations. The submission recommended that:

  1. There be appropriate migration options to allow the flow of outstanding science talent to and from Australia.
  2. Equitable funding arrangements should extend to supporting excellent research without prejudice to the type of research organisation undertaking it.
  3. Any future science strategy for Australia must be working towards a goal of gender equity within science.
  4. Recommendations of the ACOLA review of research training should be considered with regards to improving collaboration between research organisations and industry.
