The text of the amended Agreement also specifies that as far as the Australian Government is concerned, these activities will cover all scientific and technological activities financed or executed by the Australian Government, the governments of the States and of territories, as well as non-governmental authorities, in particular the sectors of private research and economic activity and all interested research bodies.
