Dear ASA Members,

Science and Technology Australia (STA), of which the ASA is a member, is providing election updates and science advocacy strategies for scientists and technologists around Australia in the lead-up to the Federal Election on May 18. Through their platform #Solveitwithscience, they are advocating for science-based solutions, and throughout the election campaign, they are providing analyses of the key parties' policies and Budget commitments.

To stay engaged with the work of STA, and to find strategies for participating in the upcoming Federal Election cycle, please see their webpage:

Measures to support the future science- and technology-skilled workforce and a commitment to action on climate change were welcome highlights of the Opposition’s Budget Reply speech, but Science & Technology Australia lamented the lack of detail on investment in the nation’s knowledge economy.

Note that as a member organisation, the ASA Executive has access to the members-only election analysis. Please contact me if you would like further information about the analyses available in that section.
