The Inspiring Australia Strategy is one of only a handful of national science engagement strategies in the world. Developed in consultation with a wide range of science communicators, educators, journalists and scientists in all states and territories, the strategy provides a platform for national coordination and leadership for science engagement across Australia. But how did the strategy get to where it is today, who is involved and what effect is it having?
Hear from Professor Allan Dale, Kylie Walker, and Keely Quinn in this interactive session which will be an opportunity to examine the strategy, to look at what has worked and what hasn’t, as well thinking through how it could be improved.
Topics such as how the strategy came into place, how the national framework has been built, what online tools and training are being developed, how national grants are allocated, how the partnerships and infrastructure of the Inspiring Australia Programme were implemented, who is doing what under the programmes or what is evolving within the Science Sector Group are all up for discussion in this session. Bring your questions and ideas for this discussion with staff from the Inspiring Australia Programmes and communication and science representatives from other science agencies.
