Our new leader Malcolm(the innovator)"Mister nice guy" is destroying the CSIRO why??
He has carried on with the slash and burn policies of his predecessor, was his speech about how we have to become a cleverer country just hot air.Has he become just a very ordinary politician like all the rest, did he just say what we wanted to hear
The CSIRO decades it has been considered the jewel in Australia’s crown of science and innovation.
Researchers from the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) have brought to the world such marvels as Wi-Fi technology and polymer bank notes, helped beam the moon landing around the globe, and protected millions of people from deadly diseases with their groundbreaking research.
But now the CSIRO is dogged by crippling job cuts and slashes to funding that have left people contemplating a bleak future for Australian scientific research — and for Australia generally.
At a time when the Turnbull government is spruiking a national commitment to innovation and learning in science, technology, engineering and maths, many believe moves to deplete Australia’s most iconic scientific research institutions just doesn’t make sense.
