Chief scientist makes urgent call for Australia to lift its STEM game


Australia’s chief scientist, professor Ian Chubb, has issued an urgent call for Australia to lift its game in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, saying they are key to Australia’s future.

In his just released report ‘Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics: Australia’s Future’ he points out that Australia is the only OECD country “not to have a current national strategy that bears on science and/or technology and/or innovation.” He adds: “In our region, India, China, Indonesia and Singapore all have strategies to 2015 or beyond.”

He says that Australia now ranks 81st as a converter of raw innovation capability into the outputs business needs: new knowledge, better products, creative industries and growing wealth.
