February 2013 - CSIRO - Investing in our digital future
Last week we had the honour of hosting Sir Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web, as Senator Stephen Conroy launched Australia's largest publically-funded research activity focused on the digital economy. The Digital Productivity and Services Flagship (DPAS) is a $40 million per annum research initiative to help address Australia's productivity challenge by focusing on the services sector and unlocking the value in national broadband infrastructure.
The initiative is aimed at helping Australia transition from being a predominantly resource-focused nation by developing and delivering more efficient and innovative digitally-enhanced services.
“I believe a successful digital economy is essential for Australia's economic growth and to maintain our international standing. The services sector represents about 80 per cent of Australia's GDP, so if we are to help Australia grow, we must help businesses and government deliver services in new, faster and better ways.” - Dr Ian Oppermann, DPAS Director
