IN FOCUS: SCIENCE WEEK

Science policy in focus

National Science Week is Australia’s annual celebration of all things science and technology.

To mark the event, Policy Forum’s Science policy: In Focus section is putting science policy under the microscope. In this section, we hope to inspire the public, policymakers, and academia alike to observe the world of science and experiment with ideas.

We encourage you to join the conversation and take part in the science policy debate. Maybe these discussions will spark the next ‘Eureka’ moment. Who knows?
