National Innovation & Science Agenda

Innovation and science are critical for Australia to deliver new sources of growth, maintain high-wage jobs and seize the next wave of economic prosperity.

Innovation is about new and existing businesses creating new products, processes and business models. It is also about creating a culture that backs good ideas and learns from taking risks and making mistakes.

Australia is well placed to take advantage of the opportunities presented by these exciting times. But to succeed, there are areas where we need to improve.

The Australian Government’s National Innovation and Science Agenda will focus on four key pillars:

  1. Culture and capital
  2. Collaboration
  3. Talent and skills
  4. Government as an exemplar.

Together these pillars provide a framework for Australian innovation policy. The initiatives are worth A$1.1 billion over four years.

The National Innovation and Science Agenda will drive smart ideas that create business growth, local jobs and global success.
