In this final session, participants will review all preceding case studies and work toward a synthesis of concepts. The goal is to develop a multifaceted approach to robust public policy.

This session will connect science, technology, and public policy answering questions like:

  • Why science and technology matter for various policy domains
  • Patterns, processes, and institutions in the conduct of R&D in domestic and international contexts
  • Science, technology and social licence to operate in Australia and the Asia-Pacific 
  • Communicating science and technology, science advice, and science diplomacy.

Upon successful completion of this exploration of the theoretical implications of science, technology, and policy, participants will have a clearer sense of the relevance of the policy issues across a whole-of-government framework.
