Submission to the South Australian Productivity Commission
The Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering (ATSE) welcomes the opportunity to respond to the South Australian Productivity Commission’s Issues Paper on the Research and Development Inquiry.
Research and development and their translation into practice are essential drivers of a country’s economic growth and international competitiveness. Well-targeted R&D can generate economic, environmental and social benefits that far outweigh the investment. It is in the South Australian Government’s interest to support (and jointly fund) R&D and the translation of its outcomes in order to achieve sustainable economic growth and prosperity for all South Australians.
