Australia's Chief Scientist

Interview: ABC Radio PM

The Chief Scientist was interviewed by Lucy Carter on ABC Radio for the PM program about innovation and entrepreneurship in Australia.

Professor Chubb said Australia must embrace a culture of entrepreneurship to make use of the depth of our talent. A new report released by the Office of the Chief Scientist says universities should play a key role in fostering entrepreneurship in Australia.

“We’ve got the talent, we’ve got people, we’ve got skills – what is it about us that really makes it apparently more difficult for us to do some of those things that happen in other countries?”, Professor Chubb asks.
