Science & Technology Australia is deeply grateful to Professor Mark Hutchinson for his remarkable leadership and legacy as President of STA.
The urgent imperative for Australia to train and retain more STEM talent – and bring our STEM talent back from overseas – was tackled by the Parliamentary Friends of Science group at Parliament House.
Legislation to abolish the Ministerial veto on Australian Research Council grants will powerfully depoliticise research funding and deliver stronger transparency and accountability in decision-making.
