Quick stats and facts from the 2021 NRI Roadmap Survey

Thank you to everyone who took part in our survey. Almost 3,000 people responded generating a rich body of insights into how the research and industry sectors are currently interacting with Australia’s NRI, what they need from it now and in the future, and what they see as the emerging trends and challenges.

    • equipment/kit (47%)
    • expertise or advice (39%)
    • collected data for research (34%)

We will continue to analyse the large amount of data the survey produced, and over the next few weeks will explore solutions to some of the issues raised using the next steps in the consultation process. These include the Industry Engagement Ideas Jam, as well as collecting your feedback on two of the key Scoping Study activities undertaken since the 2016 Roadmap.
