Our statement re the Prime Minister's comments on research to the Press Club on Feb 1

3 Feb 2022 12:13 PM | Anonymous

The AIP welcomes the Australian government’s investment in research and the acknowledgement of its importance for the country.

Industry-based PhD projects and fellowships at all levels, from early career researchers to research leaders, will foster collaboration between industry and academia to help the translation of research innovations into commercial products.

The AIP agrees that more needs to be done at the interface between industry and university-based research. At the same time, we are worried about balance and a possible drastic shift in funding. It is important to support both basic and applied research to ensure a pipeline into translation.
