2017 – Draft 2016 National Research Infrastructure Roadmap

16 Jan 17

Attachment: Draft-2016-National-Roadmap-submission-CAPA

The national research infrastructure roadmap is clear in its outline as to what is needed for the future of Australian research. The areas of focus are clear as is the outline of what is available as well as what is needed will provide a focus for future investment. There are however some concerns that the Council of Australian Postgraduate Associations have particularly in areas that are missing in the roadmap that will be essential. Without a plan for continued research investment that can outlast changing governments or a plan to ensure continued skills training and career development the roadmap is only a wish list and Australia’s research infrastructure will suffer the same issues that it currently does.
