This week the government released its National Innovation and Science Agenda Report.
One of the recommendations includes:
We will bring entrepreneurs and other innovative talent to Australia by:
- Introducing a new Entrepreneurs Visa for up and coming entrepreneurial talent;
- Actively seeking out and encouraging talented individuals to come to Australia, using existing Government overseas networks; and
- Enhancing pathways to permanent residency for high quality STEM and ICT post-graduate students.
Apparently changes are 12 months away….but watch this space.
