Abstract

[Extract] Executive summary

The Inspiring Australia strategy is a high-level national strategy for public engagement with the sciences and a key element of Australia's innovation agenda. The Australian government believes that, in order to help the nation 'unlock its full potential', it is necessary to examine those areas which, due to location, may have been disadvantaged in science engagement. The tropical region of Australia is one such region. It requires a different approach, and to this end, the Australian Government has established an Expert Working Group (EWG) focused on science engagement into and for the tropical region of Australia to support implementation of the Inspiring Australia strategy.
