The Academy hosted the second of two International Science Council (ISC) networking events for 2018 in Melbourne in November.
The event brought together stakeholders and senior Australian representatives with diverse disciplinary backgrounds, including the Australian member of the ISC’s inaugural Governing Board.
The event was preceded by a meeting of the Academy’s Advisory Committee for International Matters. The committee discussed a range of issues including future directions of the ISC and the Academy’s international strategy.
Following these events this year, the Academy is pleased to announce another series of ISC networking events across Australia in 2019. Details will follow in the new year.
As the national adhering organisation to the International Science Council and international scientific unions, the Academy represents Australian science at these high-level international fora and, through its 22 National Committees for Science, works to facilitate engagement and participation by all scientific communities across Australia.
