Description

AN EYE TO THE FUTURE: SHAPING AUSTRALIA'S TOMORROW

Securing Australia's Future Book Launch


Securing Australia’s Future, a four-year, $10 million research program, explores options for shaping the nation's priorities through a time of economic transition. Funded by the Australian Research Council and delivered by the Australian Council of Learned Academies, the program comprises 11 independent interdisciplinary studies through the Fellowships of Australia’s four Learned Academies. Each study was delivered to the Office of the Chief Scientist for the Prime Minister's Science Engineering and Innovation Council and then the Commonwealth Science Council.

The publication, Securing Australia’s Future: Harnessing interdisciplinary research for innovation and prosperity, explores each of the studies and draws out a set of overarching findings on how to ensure Australia’s future prosperity. These include maintaining Australia’s strong education system; embracing Australia’s relationships in the Asia-Pacific region; and building industries of the future.

The book will be launched on Wednesday 28 June and will be followed by a panel session with eminent panelists: Professor Ian Chubb AC FAA FTSE, Dr Christina Parolin, and Australia's Chief Scientist Dr Alan Finkel AO FAA FTSE.

Registration is essential as spaces are strictly limited. Registrations close 25 June 2017.
