National Innovation and Science Agenda (NISA)

On 7 December 2015, the Commonwealth Government unveiled a $1 billion plan to foster greater innovation across 11 different Government portfolios. Through the National Innovation and Science Agenda the Government will invest to incentivise innovation and entrepreneurship, reward risk taking, and promote science, maths and computing in schools by focusing on four priority areas:

  • Culture and capital, to help businesses embrace risk and incentivise early stage investment in start - ups;
  • Collaboration, to increase the level of engagement between businesses, universities and the research sector to commercialise ideas and solve problems;
  • Talent and skills, to train Australian students for the jobs of the future and attract the world’s most innovative talent to Australia; and
  • Government as an exemplar, to lead by example in the way Government invests in and uses technology and data to deliver better quality services.
