Science and research
Science and research is an ever growing field in Australia. It’s largely government funded but there are also some major private scientific organisations working in the field. Plus, scientists can also work in house for big corporations, where there is a need to test or create products. Science and research go hand in hand. They cover a wide range of areas such as the environment, food, chemical products, animals and nature, the climate and medicine.
Science and research paves the way for future technologies and even unknown industries. The work they do today will have a huge lasting impact on the way future generations live on the planet.
