Australia 2030- prosperity through innovation – making it happen

Commercialisation, scale and fostering our great talent are key to Australia achieving the prosperity clearly outlined in Bill Ferris’s report Australia 2030 – Prosperity through innovation. His clarion call for national action, supported by a brilliant Innovation and Science Australia Board, becomes the backdrop for discussing how we make it happen, leading us to the prosperous nation envisioned in the report.

$1.6 trillion is at stake in the global innovation race – and it’s all about accelerating our pace. It’s not R&D but R&Do.

The Summit will focus on how best to ride the technology race in health, agriculture, energy, transport, finance and the professions.

Focussing on what needs to be done now and what we need to take on board and learn from the most innovative nations, we debate key issues that will impact our innovative efforts. We explore what we can do collectively to get Australia there way before 2030.

The Australia 2030 – Prosperity through innovation has clearly identified and outlined the necessary steps and areas we must strengthen to ensure our nation embraces an innovation mindset, expands its capacity and fuels local talent to achieve some moon shots.

How do we make it happen?
