The Capability Papers draws leaders from across the tech ecosystem – the companies, institutions and technologists building capability across key strategic sectors – and creates an avenue to form new partnerships and connections. The discussion this series brokers will help inform the iteration of policy and the distribution of the National Reconstruction Fund.

Like The Innovation Papers, The Capability Papers will be a curated selection of more than 30 papers from local experts, founders and analysts. It will coincide with the roll out of the much-anticipated National Reconstruction Fund – the single biggest investment in transformative economic infrastructure since the Snowy Hydro. This is a moment in time when Australia looks strategically at where its investment could best be directed locally – and where it makes sense to partner with allies around the globe.

To meet the challenges and opportunities that the coming decades will bring, Australia must be both pragmatic and ambitious. The Capability Papers is a deep dive into better understanding where these strengths and capabilities lie.

To make the most of this powerful publication, we’ll bring together the papers in stages, by theme and state/territory. This collation of papers will again culminate in a launch at Parliament House in October, showcasing physical copies of The Capability Papers to high-calibre tech and government executives, industry experts, strong-growth businesses, private sector influencers and investors – as they gather for a one-of-a-kind networking opportunity that put Australia’s current capability landscape under the microscope.
