Minister for Defence Industry Christopher Pyne said the government was placing the highest priority on national security through this policy.

“Australia needs to remain at the forefront of science and innovation so we can meet any new and emerging threats to our security,” Minister Pyne said.

“We must work seamlessly across government and in collaboration with our industry and university partners to develop the best capabilities for protecting Australia against threats to our national security.

“This policy puts us in a strong position to harness the expertise and resources required to address national security challenges now and into the future.”
