The ACDS made a submission to the inquiry into the Higher Education Support Amendment (Job-Ready Graduates and Supporting Regional and Remote Students) Bill 2020.

The submission highlighted that the proposed changes will significantly undermine STEM education in Australia’s universities. At the same time they will undermine the capacity of Australian university science to engage with industry, to maintain the research activity that underpins that engagement, and to play its part in building Australia’s economic competitiveness and sovereign capability in manufacturing and industry.
