FORUM & LUNCH | 19 OCTOBER 2023 | OLD PARLIAMENT HOUSE
The Capability Papers is an 80-page tabloid-sized newspaper filled with position papers from leading experts from industry and academia putting forward ideas to help build Australian technology and industrial capability.
The papers was launched at The Capability Papers [LIVE] forum and luncheon at Old Parliament House on October 19.
The Capability Papers [LIVE] forum brought together the authors of these papers to present their ideas to building domestic capability and new industries for Australia.
This project poses the questions: Where does Australia have existing world leading capability? Where do we have an existing competitive advantage? Where do we need to develop a strategic domestic industrial capability?
And given that we can’t do everything – where should Australia put focus its energy and attention to meet our strategic and industrial needs.
