ATSE's plan for a technology powered, human driven future.

Election 2022

ATSE’s Federal Election Hub

As Australia grapples with the profound economic impact of COVID-19, the country has a unique opportunity to position itself as a technological powerhouse driven by a clean and sustainable economy, highly skilled workforce and world-class research activity and commercialisation.

The coming decade will see the culmination of a unique set of challenges associated with decarbonising the economy, managing the decline of many industries, and training the workforce needed for an increasingly digital future.

Leading into the next Federal Election, this page will be frequently updated with submissions, news and insights.
