Australia's National Science Statement

tagteam101's bookmarks 2017-03-24

Summary:

The government will ensure that opportunities for all Australians to engage with all aspects of the science process are maximised.

Community engagement in science is mutually beneficial. It supports improved research program design and data collection, strong public discourse about science and better use of scientific information in decision making. Open access to research data and findings improves the return on investment in science through increased use, re‑use and impact of scientific findings. End users are also often well placed to provide advice and guidance on scientific opportunities and priorities. Education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics at all levels ensures that Australians are able to participate in our increasingly science-driven society, whether through employment or in their everyday lives.
