2030 Strategic Plan for the Australian Innovation, Science and Research System

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 Strategic Plan will aim to contribute to the wellbeing and prosperity of all Australians by ensuring that Australia reaches its innovation potential.

The 2030 Strategic Plan will identify investment and infrastructure priorities and areas for consideration by government. It will also outline how progress can be substantially evaluated. The 2030 Strategic Plan will be delivered to government in the last quarter of 2017.

Our vision for Australia in 2030 is clear:

We want an Australia counted within the top tier of innovation nations, known and respected for its excellence in science, research and commercialisation.
Innovation, which can underpin a diversity of internationally competitive industries, will enable todays and future generations to have meaningful work, and a great quality of life, in a fair and inclusive society.

Innovation and Science Australia will be engaging with stakeholders across the Australian innovation, science and research system throughout 2017 in developing the 2030 Strategic Plan.

Innovation and Science Australia has released an Issues Paper for consultation. This Issues Paper nominates six challenges we see as central to shaping the 2030 Strategic Plan, and suggests themes and questions for discussion. We welcome your feedback on these challenges – are they the right ones? Have we missed something? How can we move from ideas to actions? Over the next few months Innovation and Science Australia will be leading a public conversation to discuss these issues and invite your contribution to a Strategic Plan that reflects the hopes and aspirations of all Australians.

If you would like to make a submission, please visit the Consultation Hub . Submissions are open until 31 May 2017.
