Message from the Chief Executive—March 2018

March 19, 2018

Annually the Academy recognises and supports outstanding contributions to the advancement of science. One of the ways we achieve this is by supporting a number of awards. Support is provided to early career scientist, mid-career scientists and to lifelong achievement. The Academy supports research, conferences that focus on rapidly developing fields of research, as well as the presentation of lectures. Our travelling fellowships are designed to support the exchange of scientific ideas domestically and abroad.

Historically, fewer women than men apply for the Academy’s Awards. We know that when women do apply they do just as well as male applicants. Help us identify Australia’s brilliant scientific minds—women and men—and encourage them to apply for the Academy’s Awards.

The March newsletter includes information on how you can register for the Academy’s annual flagship event, Science at the Shine Dome, to be held on 22-24 May. It’s a unique occasion to celebrate science and to honour outstanding achievements in science. Science at the Shine Dome attracts a national and international audience of over 400 people including Academy Fellows, chief scientists, Nobel Prize winners, early- and mid-career researchers, science sector and government representatives, parliamentarians, media and the public. We hope you can join us.

Enjoy reading the March newsletter!
