A super of scientists

Chief Scientist Cathy Foley hosted a “super forum” of science leaders yesterday

There were the various state and territory science chiefs, plus New Zealand’s, members of the PM’s Science and Tech Council, top scientists from federal government agencies and peak research funders.

Announced topics included critical tech, supply chains and sovereign manufacturing but there is no word on what was actually discussed.

The event appears to meet Dr Foley’s work-plan to “leverage the government’s investment in science and identify opportunities for collaboration” (CMM August 31).
