Wayne Mapp, Minister for Research, Science and Technology today outlined his vision for the science sector, focusing on the following four themes:
* creating more certainty in the public good and “enabling” science space through longer-term funding, encouraging collaboration and improving the flow of ideas both into and out of the system
* boosting the results of growth-orientated research by examining the funding balance and sharpening the requirements around intended outcomes, time horizons and success gates
* simplifying the system to allow efficiencies for the users and clarity for everyone.
