Science in the balance: how universities can manage research and education
As Australia experienced shockwaves from the COVID-19 pandemic, the financial issues facing universities were put in the spotlight.
At the same time, the pandemic highlighted the vital role science plays in developing the knowledge and technology needed to solve global problems.
