The Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering (ATSE) is a Learned Academy of around 900 independent, non-political experts helping Australians understand and use technology to solve complex problems. Bringing together Australia’s leading thinkers in applied science, technology, and engineering, ATSE provides impartial, practical, and evidence-based advice on how to achieve sustainable solutions and advance prosperity.
ATSE welcomes the opportunity to provide a submission to the 2022-23 Federal Budget. This submission outlines the need to develop a skilled workforce for the future, create the conditions for research activity and commercialisation, and utilise technology to address climate change. To achieve this vision, we present a set of specific recommendations for strategic and targeted Government investment in the 2022-23 Federal Budget.
