Introduction

The Australian Government considers that enabling technologies have the potential to provide significant long term social and economic benefits for Australia. Enabling technologies have the potential to underpin an increasing number of breakthrough innovations in products, services and processes and to offer effective solutions to help address major global and national challenges, such as medical treatments, energy generation and environmental remediation. However, they may also pose new health, safety and environmental risks and have economic, ethical and social impacts. A balance needs to be found that manages the risks and impacts whilst ensuring that the benefits can be obtained


The Australian Government established the National Enabling Technologies Strategy (NETS)1 as part of its Innovation Agenda, with the objective of supporting the responsible uptake of enabling technologies. The detail of the strategy was announced in February 2010, including a commitment to provide annual reports to the government on its implementation as well as enabling technology development in Australia more generally. The three major components of the Strategy are:
