The National Innovation and Science Agenda, launched on 7 December 2015, is about harnessing these opportunities and positioning Australia for the future.

The Agenda is a comprehensive suite of initiatives to enable Australia to seize the next wave of prosperity by embracing new ideas through innovation and science.

The Agenda focuses on four key pillars:

  • Taking the leap: backing Australian entrepreneurs by opening up new sources of finance, embracing risk, taking on innovative ideas, and making more of our public research.
  • Working together: increasing collaboration between industry and researchers to find solutions to real world problems and to create jobs and growth.
  • Best and brightest: developing and attracting world-class talent for the jobs of the future.
  • Leading by example: the Australian Government will lead by example; embracing innovation and agility in the way we do business.
