  CSIRO COVID-19: Recovery and Resilience report cover

Join us for an exclusive briefing with CSIRO’s Chief Executive, Dr Larry Marshall and our strategic and economic experts as we discuss:

  • Insights on Australia's COVID-19 recovery opportunities
  • The key growth sectors identified to benefit from science and technology investment
  • The role of science and technology and how businesses can create economic value
  • The role of deployment-ready technologies for job creation.

These are some of the topics covered in a new report from CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency. Launching mid-September 2020, the COVID-19: Recovery and resilience report highlights opportunities to restore economic growth using science and technology over the next 6-24 months. Longer term opportunities are also identified as Australia starts to take steps towards building a resilient and future-proof economy from 2022 and beyond.
