Welcome to the December edition #53 of the CRCSI News.

Yesterday Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull announced the National Innovation and Science Agenda with the Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science Christopher Pyne.

The Agenda highlights over $1B across 25 initiatives that include: a new Entrepreneur Visa, $250M support for turning health and medical research into a commercial reality, $200M to CSIRO innovation for spin-off and start-up companies, products and services, $36M Global Innovation Strategy to collaborate globally in research and establish landing pads in Tele Aviv and Silicon Valley, $13M to increase opportunities for women in research, start-ups and entrepreneurial firms, $520M for the Australian Synchrotron and a new Cyber Security Growth Centre.

The CRCSI sits neatly within this Agenda in its current form, with many opportunities as a new entity beyond 2018. More details to come in 2016.
