The 25 experts will be formally welcomed into the Academy at its Annual Meeting in Melbourne on 23 November.
The Academy elected a Foreign Fellow and an Honorary Fellow.
Academy President, Professor Hugh Bradlow, welcomed their election, saying the new Fellows strengthened the Academy’s aim of ensuring that Australia remained a world-leading technology economy.
“We’re motivated by what’s best for our nation’s future,” he said. “And we do that by bringing together the brightest minds in technology, engineering and science to offer impartial, evidence-based, and practical advice.”
The 25 new Fellows include 10 women – exceeding the Academy’s short-term target of electing one-third of its new Fellows from female candidates.
