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.

ISA's 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.

To ensure the 2030 Strategic Plan is based on the best possible advice and harnesses insights from the innovation, science and research system and the broader community, Innovation and Science Australia has sought public submissions in response to an Issues Paper released on 24 March 2017. This Issues Paper nominated six challenges, and suggested themes and questions for discussion. Public submissions closed on 7 June 2017. Innovation and Science Australia received over 100 submissions, which will be used to inform the development of the 2030 Strategic Plan. Public submissions will be published at the Consultation Hub. If you would like to provide any feedback, information or advice to inform the development of the 2030 Strategic Plan, please email office@isa.gov.au
