About us

This website shares ideas and stories of success from the Australian science community – which includes researchers, science communicators and educators – as well as events and prize opportunities from around the country.

It is an initiative from the Inspiring Australia strategy, which was developed by the Australian Government to increase engagement and interest in the sciences.

The Inspiring Australia program also included the Unlocking Australia’s Potential grants, awarded in 2012, as well as National Science Week and the Prime Minister’s Prizes for Science.

This site is funded by the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science and is managed by Science in Public.
