Eleven industry leaders from across Australia representing institutional research, startups, corporates and government have been named to the Advisory Board for the 2024 iteration of the ‘Papers’ series, to be called The Industry Papers.

With an Advisory Board now in place, will develop key themes for The Industry Papers and launch a public Call for Papers in February.

The Industry Papers project will culminate in the publication of a 65,000-word, tabloid-sized newspaper filled with policy papers written by grassroots domain experts volunteering ideas and energy toward building a prosperous and resilient Australia.

The Industry Papers next year follows the successful 2023 publication of The Capability Papers, and 2022’s The Innovation Papers.

The project includes the roll-out of four specialist forums held across four cities, culminating in the launch of The Industry Papers and policy presentations by the authors. You can register your interest to participate in The Industry Papers as either a contributor, a sponsor or a delegate by clicking here.

The Advisory Board for the 2024 Industry Papers projects consists of:

  • Adrian Turner, CEO, Exoflare
  • Ben Constable, Managing Director Australia, Lumira Ventures
  • Charlotte Connell, Director of impact, Climate Zeitgeist
  • David McKeague, founder & CSO, Curious Thing AI
  • Dr Hannah Brown PhD, acting director, South Australian Research and Development Institute
  • Julia Spicer, Queensland Chief Entrepreneur
  • Peter Rossdeutscher, CEO, QuantumTX
  • Dr Priya Dev, lecturer, Australian National University
  • Rachel Slattery, owner, Slatterys
  • Roy Green, Emeritus Professor and Special Innovation Advisor, University of Technology Sydney, and Board member, CSIRO
  • Steven Boxall, CEO, Resource Centre for Excellence

The Industry Papers will arrive at an interesting time in 2024 for industrial development in Australia. The National Reconstruction Fund will likely be operational, together with the $392 million Industry Growth Program,” said publisher Corrie McLeod.

“The energy transition will be in full swing, while the onshoring and ‘friend-shoring’ of critical supply chains will reshape our industrial base.

“These debates and discussions about the reindustrialisation of Australia and the modernisation of our economy are critical, not just to our future prosperity, but to our economic resilience and even national security.

“We are delighted that such an impressive group of Australians have agreed to join The Industry Papers Advisory Board and look forward to working with them to shape the themes for 2024.”
