But what will she do on Tuesday?

“It’s my goal that with the leadership and support of Science Technology Australia, Australia’s governments, private sector, academic institutions and the Australian public will agree on, and pursue, an ambitious, courageous, and dogged agenda to build a new knowledge nation on the foundations of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. By supporting and embracing science and technology we will be empowered to shape the nation rather than have it shaped for us. We will be the creators of the new jobs that replace those lost to automation, we will be the creators of the new sustainable industries required by dwindling resources, energy challenges, and rapid climate change. We will empower a booming new economy, and we will facilitate a healthy and just society.” – Emma Johnston, dean of science at UNSW and new STA president sets out objectives.
