Parallel universes of the R&D Tax Incentive

The research community has long wanted funding via the Research and Development Tax Incentive

But there is an altogether alternative argument over what it should fund in the parallel universe of the Senate Select Committee on Australia as a technology and financial centre.

The first recommendation of its second interim report recommends amending the TI to use different incentives and to make quarterly payments – which does not sound like using it to fund uni-industry collaborative research.
