038 - PROGRESS BY POLICY - Minister Alister Henskens

May 11, 2022

PROGRESS BY POLICY

Government support is a cornerstone of Australian innovation, but navigating the wide array of grants, programs and policies that shape national innovation can be a daunting prospect for aspiring scientists and entrepreneurs. Today, we are pleased to be joined by a man who not only knows this landscape, but is helping to shape it.

Originally from Newcastle, Alister Henskens spent two decades practicing law before his entry into NSW parliament as the member for Kur-ring-gai in 2015. He has since ascended to cabinet and is currently serving as both the Minister for Science, Innovation and Technology, as well as the Minister for Skills and Training, portfolios that place him at the centre of research translation policy in the state.  

So join us for a glimpse behind the curtain of NSW government, and hear how this emerging leader is shaping innovation policy for current and future generations.
