Australia's STEM Workforce [Report]

By Administrator | 31 March 2016

"Australia’s future will rely on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)—disciplines at the core of innovation. Our businesses will rely on STEM to compete in the emerging sectors that new technologies will create, as well as in the existing sectors which new technologies will transform. Our workforce will require specialised skills in STEM as well as high STEM literacy across the board to sustain economic growth. We know that STEM will be critical; and yet we know very little about who possesses these skills in Australia, where they work or how their careers progress from graduation. This report is a comprehensive overview of the data we have; and as such a measure of our capability for STEM-led change." Read the report
