Science & Technology Australia

Science & Technology Australia (STA) is Australia’s peak body in science and technology. We represent more than 225,000 scientists, engineers and technologists.

STA is an influential voice for evidence and expertise in public policy.

Our mission is to advance the public good and social and community welfare, and strengthen civil society, through education, outreach and programs.

We do so to advance the impact of science and technology to help solve some of humanity’s greatest challenges, including saving and improving lives.

With headquarters in Canberra, STA has excellent relationships with Parliamentarians, the Office of the Chief Scientist, the scientific academies, heads of Government science agencies, granting bodies, and key industry players.

We bring together scientists, scientific societies, governments, industry and the broader community.

The Federation of Australian Scientific and Technological Societies (FASTS) trading as Science & Technology Australia (STA) is an association incorporated under the ACT Associations Act.
