The Future of Life Sciences: Analysing the Budget and looking beyond

Thursday 12 November 2020

10:30am - 11:15am AEDT / 7:30am - 8:15am AWST

Innovation will be a driving force for growth and recovery from recession. The life sciences sector attracts $1.5b in R&D investment each year. This year’s budget sees the Government investing $2b in R&D Tax Incentives, removing the cap on refunds, lifting the rate and rewarding those businesses that invest the most. Additionally, the Government announced $460m for the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation.

Join our webinar where we will discuss outcomes from the budget and the future of the sector, including the R&D tax incentive, increasing the manufacturing capability in Australia, the risk of a capital shortfall, funding for universities and regulation of the sector.

We will be joined by Lorraine Chiroiu, CEO of AusBiotech, and Sukvinder Heyer, Partner - Innovation Incentives, Grant Thornton Australia.

We hope to see you there.
