Australia 2025: Smart Science
Australia in 2025 will be: strong, prosperous, healthy and secure and positioned to benefit all Australians in a rapidly changing world.
We are told that Australia will need a diverse economy built on sustainable productivity growth, knowledge-based industries and high value goods and services.
In this series, we invited 12 senior figures in a range of disciplines to prepare an essay describing how their discipline or area will contribute to the Australia of the future.
To broaden the perspective, we invited two other experts to write comments on the same question.
The series began on Tuesday 11 February 2014, with an introduction by the Chief Scientist.
It will be co-published fortnightly, on Tuesdays, in The Conversation and through the Office of the Chief Scientist.
