Statement on Budget 2019-20
03 April 2019
Geoscience Australia's budget information is published in the Industry, Innovation and Science Portfolio Budget Statements.
Across the portfolio, the 2019-20 Budget includes funding for Australia’s space sector and also a package to build a stronger Australian workforce with more science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) skills. Geoscience Australia welcomes these announcements as they will aid the development of Australian satellite technology and also boost the participation of women and girls in STEM.
We also welcome the Government’s commitment to a pilot project to demonstrate the benefits of establishing a national climate and disaster risk information capability for Australia. Geoscience Australia will be working with the Department of Home Affairs to deliver this project.
