Mid-way review of the National Science Challenge

In 2018 a mid-way review of the National Science Challenges concluded with the Science Board agreeing to fund all 11 National Science Challenges at the maximum funding amount. This amount was set by Cabinet in 2013 for 1 July 2019 – 30 June 2024, and brings the total investment to $680.8 million.

In making its decision, the Science Board considered the review panels’ assessment of each Challenge against the assessment criteria outlined in the Gazette notice.
