National Science and Research Priorities Submission

We handed in a submission on the revitalisation of Australia’s National Science and Research Priorities.

We submitted a proposal to the Federal Government’s consultation on refreshing the National Science and Research Priorities. These priorities are a key statement to shape a long-term vision for Australia’s science and research systems. It is envisaged that these refreshed priorities will provide a framework to embed science into government decision making and help align investment and funding decisions.

In our submission, we suggest the nomination of cellular agriculture as one of these important national priorities. We emphasise that we have the potential to be a leader in cellular agriculture, positioning Australia to capture part of the global protein boom, estimated by CSIRO to be worth $13 billion to our economy. It would also drive multiple transformational outcomes in research and scientific advancements, new product development, export market development, climate change mitigation for food and fibre production, sovereign capability in manufacturing capability, food security capacity for vulnerable regions and supply chain resilience.

We look forward to engaging more with all levels of government about the importance of cellular agriculture to Australia’s environment and economy.
