Australia is one of the world's leaders in research output per capita, yet we underperform our global peers when it comes to translating fundamental discoveries into tangible outcomes. Essentially, we are missing out on the benefits that our strong scientific foundation could provide.

2018 Global Innovation Index

A researcher's output of academic publications is a key factor used to determine whether they should receive funding, and keep their job. This pressures researchers to publish work early and often, and sacrificing opportunities to progress projects toward real-world outcomes.

Researcher Survey

Australian public research funding is extremely competitive, with success rates averaging only 15 %. Every year, Australian researchers collectively dedicate over 5 centuries of their working lives to prepare applications that ultimately provide no benefit to the community.
