Strategic Plan 2000–2003
Section Two of this strategic plan comprises the executive summaries of the 22 sector plans developed through a comprehensive and intensive process involving detailed consultation with CSIRO's external Sector Advisory Committees. Seventy per cent of the members of these Committees are drawn from industry and the community; 30% from Commonwealth and State government departments with a direct interest in our work. CSIRO has had to make some hard decisions on key areas of the research investment portfolio. The nature of these decisions and the strategic considerations behind them are summarised in Section One.
