Inspiring Science, Inspiring Australia: Telling Australia's Brilliant Stories
The Inspiring Australia initiative, launched in 2010, seeks to generate a coherent, nation-wide approach to the communication of the sciences. It provides, for the first time, an opportunity for a wide range of sectors to work together to build a strong, open relationship between science and society - a scientifically engaged Australia.
As part of the Australian Government's plan to encourage collaboration and open dialogue, this first Inspiring Australia National Conference will bring together representatives from governments; academic, research, cultural and professional institutions; business and industry; media and communications organisations; and community organisations.
The conference, through interactive face-to-face and online sessions, will consider key questions relating to the recommendations of the Inspiring Australia report, and develop priorities for us to cooperate on and action over the next year.
An interactive website will be available soon. This will provide a way for you to access background information and to be involved in pre-conference discussion and the development of preliminary options for consideration at the conference.
