The Australian Academy of Science President, Professor Suzanne Cory, will address the National Press Club of Australia, Canberra, 3 July 2013.

Food and water security, natural heritage degradation; skills shortages undermining our productive industries and capacities; our children being overtaken in the smart stakes by other nations; a loss of international engagement: Australia has been competitive and we've done well but we're now coasting. The creation and use of new knowledge is not merely one of a range of choices, but an essential foundation. Our clever country is in danger of devolution.

Imagine instead, from our sound and wealthy position, Australia prepares for the economic, social and environmental challenges of this century by investing in science and education to at least to the levels of our competitors. Real income growth is going to depend largely on productivity growth, which will require improvement in education and innovation performance.
