This year, over 1800 events are registered online with activities being held across Australia, with a focus on the crucial role that science plays in supporting Australia’s well-being, improving our health and boosting our prosperity.
Australia is home to world-leading scientists, universities and research institutes. Our scientists have been responsible for some of the greatest discoveries of the modern era, from penicillin and the bionic ear to the world’s first artificial pacemaker.
National Science Week is about celebrating these achievements and inspiring Australia’s next generation of scientists.
Science, technology and innovation are key drivers of the Coalition Government’s plan for a stronger economy. They help generate jobs and higher living standards for all Australians.
In 2017-18 the Coalition Government invested $10.3 billion in Australia’s research, science and technology capabilities, underscored by a $1.9 billion investment to update our National Research Infrastructure in this year’s budgets.
I’d encourage locals, schools and community groups to get on board and celebrate science.
There are many opportunities to make exciting discoveries during Science Week.
