Critical Technologies in the National Interest

The Australian Government’s Technology Profiles (Tech Cards) for Critical Technologies in the National Interest use IP Australia’s patent data as part of the technology impact assessment. 


The Action Plan for Critical Technologies demonstrates the Australian Government’s plans to protect and promote critical technologies and identifies critical technologies in our national interest.

These Technology Profiles provide a snapshot of each critical technology, its applications and the related science. They highlight Australia’s research strengths, priorities, investments, opportunities and risks.
