LABOR CONGRATULATES WINNERS OF 2017 PRIME MINISTER’S PRIZES FOR SCIENCE

Labor congratulates the recipients of the 2017 Prime Minister’s Prizes for Science, who were recognised at an awards ceremony at Parliament House last night.
 
Each of the recipients – Professor Jenny Graves AO, Laureate Professor Eric Reynolds AO, Professor Jian Yang, Distinguished Professor Dayong Jin, Mr Neil Bramsen and Mr Brett McKay – is an example of the outstanding talent that lies in Australia’s laboratories and classrooms.
 
These awards reflect the nation’s pride in the important contribution that science and research make in driving innovation across our economy and creating the jobs of the future.

That’s why Bill Shorten has committed Labor to pursuing the goal of spending 3 per cent of GDP on research and development by 2030.


A Shorten Labor Government will build the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce of the future, support advanced manufacturing businesses and the commercialisation of new ideas in Australia.
