Peter Klinken AC – WA Chief Scientist


In this episode we talk with Western Australian Chief Scientist Professor Peter Klinken AC. Peter has been the Chief Scientist for Western Australia since 2014 and has recently been reappointed for a further three years.

We discussed Peter’s background as a researcher before he was appointed to the Chief Scientist role, as well as his passion for STEM and inclusion in our modern society. We also talked about the opportunities available to the state and the nation through the move to renewable energy, and the need for Australia to pursue more value-adding manufacturing in its resources sector.
