We bring together Australia’s leading experts in applied science, technology and engineering to provide impartial, practical and evidence-based advice on how to achieve sustainable solutions and advance prosperity. The Academy contributes robust and practical thinking to Australia’s big debates. We are a Learned Academy made up of almost 900 Fellows elected by their peers.
We operate as an independent, non-government, not-for-profit organisation and we’re a registered charity with deductible gift recipient status and a registered company that’s limited by guarantee.
