Navigating the new: research and funding in the 21st century academy

Chief Scientist Professor Ian Chubb argues that “Our science investment and policies are too heavily dependent on so-called ‘terminating program’ grants, funding offsets and sporadic commitments to infrastructure. And worse, they have suffered from a lack of coordination”. Few in the university would disagree with this statement, however the question remains ‘how can we, as academics and researchers, successfully navigate this constrained funding environment and how can we support those we manage to do the same?’.

Science meets policymakers

Science meets Policymakers will bring together researchers from a range of disciplines and policymakers from various government departments to take a closer look at the intersection between the evidence base and policy development.

Speakers from the highest levels in the public service, government, public and private sector research, will take a warts-and-all look at how well the current science/policy nexus works and identify ways to improve. Case studies will be examined with the key players both on stage and in the audience.
