Australia’s tech workforce has grown 8 per cent in the past 12 months, putting the nation on track to achieve the Government’s goal of 1.2 million technology related jobs by 2030. 

Five Australian companies will share in almost $5 million to develop new digital technologies which will help make compliance and service delivery easier. 

A Dark Matter Road trip, sharing First Nations science and drone coding are just some of the projects receiving a share of close to $500,000 in grants to support National Science Week.

The Australian Government has updated the List of Critical Technologies that will help secure Australia’s future.

The Australian Government has approved close to $50 million in grants to accelerate the development of critical minerals projects which will help diversify supply chains, build domestic downstream processing and support new jobs and regional development.

Locally developed and manufactured technologies will play a critical role in Australia’s transformation into a renewable energy superpower.

The jobs of tomorrow depend on the decisions we make today. That’s why in this Budget, the Albanese Government is investing more than $500 million to lay the foundations for future economic growth in science and industry.

The Albanese Government’s second Budget lays the foundations for a stronger future by taking further steps to help Australia capitalise on the transformation to cleaner, cheaper energy and promote energy security.
