Response to 'Venturous Australia'

Jaaniste, Luke O. (2008) Response to 'Venturous Australia'. (Unpublished)

Abstract

This response to Venturous Australia (the report) holds the perspective that the creative arts and broader humanities (HASS sector) can drive, produce, apply and diffuse innovation, in different but equally useful ways compared to the STEM sector, and, consequently, that the STEM-bias in the status quo of innovation policy should be replaced with a much broader platform embracing both STEM and HASS. Whilst the report appears to share this perspective in its overall vision, it does not adequately follow this through in the substance of its discussion and recommendations. I will explain why I have come to this view, and end by listing what recommendations government should adopt to compliment the good work contained in the report.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
