For supporters of science and research wanting to know what the major parties have on offer in this year’s election campaign, you need go no further than here.
Slim pickings indeed, aside from The Greens recent science package proposal. The Greens policies are thoughtful and align well with the Australian Academy of Science’s election policy recommendations. Liberal and Labor’s policies are limited token reactions to the recent McKeon NHMRC review.
I hope I will get to update the table if/when the major contenders can come up with some sensible policy for the research sector.
In the mean time, please feel free to copy and distribute the table.
The Greens: Solid
