Australian Government Allocates $700000 To Blockchain Study

They made the budget for the agency public on May 8, 2018.

"This is a good budget for science", said Professor Andrew Holmes, President of the Australian Academy of Science. With the intention to build a smarter economy and equip Australians with the necessary future-ready skills, it will benefit the growing research, science, and technology sectors.

And $1.9 billion was pledged to support the National Research Infrastructure Roadmap for the next 12 years, starting with $393 million to kick off the Research Infrastructure Investment Strategy.

The government said the physical activity programs developed would be specifically designed for older people.

Live Performance Australia (LPA) put forward a number of proposals to the Government in its Budget submission to support new Australian content, innovation and job creation for the $2.5 billion live performance industry.

The MRFF will give $240 million to the Frontier Health and Medical Research Program to support new ideas and discoveries, and A$125 million for research into chronic conditions with a focus on diabetes and heart disease.

An example of this is the Melbourne to Brisbane Inland Rail project, for which the Federal Government committed $593.7 million in equity to the Australian Rail Track Corporation.

The funding commitment was a vital recognition of the central role intermodal terminals will play in modernising urban supply chains, the Australian Logistics Council said yesterday.

However, last night's budget announced that SBS will receive $14.6 million over two years.

Other measures include the long overdue expenditure of $70 million to replace and upgrade the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre.

$26 million over four years to establish an Australian space agency, together with investment of $5 million per annum for three years to engage in global space research projects and attract investment to Australia. The road map recommended supporting the development of advanced microscopes, new types of instrumentation, and device fabrication techniques to support research in materials science, biology, medicine, and the environment. A further $30 million will be spent to improve data sharing capabilities, including better access to data by researchers, of the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare. The program is predicted to have the potential to revolutionise health care by enabling more accurate diagnosis and treatment.

It is particularly dismal in the light of the decision to cutback on the R&D tax concession, which is the single biggest innovation incentive.

$260 million investment in satellite positioning and imaging infrastructure through Geoscience Australia.

The pilot will run in three regions across Australia.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull had last week announced a review of the APS to look into whether Australia's government departments are "equipped to engage with the key policy, service delivery, and regulatory issues of the day" in the face of digitisation.

The new budget provides $399 million to protect the Great Barrier Reef, an amount scientists call "a small step" toward what is needed. The budget allocates AU$536 million to protect the Great Barrier Reef by reducing pollution in agricultural runoff, developing coral restoration techniques, and combating outbreaks of crown-of-thorns starfish, which feed on corals.
