    In June 2015, the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI) published the Special Report Defence Science and Innovation - An Affordable Strategic Advantage.

    Ai Group has been working with ASPI to put together a Survey to inform the next Special Report.  The latest Bureau of Statistics data shows that both business and higher education investment in defence R&D has continued to fall.  As such, an additional aspect of this year’s special report will be to gain insight into private sector and higher education R&D behaviour in the defence and security domains.

    Ai Group and ASPI encourage you to complete the survey, with the assurance that all data will be received and treated in the strictest of confidence and used only for the purpose of the survey in accordance with applicable privacy requirements.
