The experts listed in the COVID-19 database have self-elected to make themselves contactable and offer their assistance in their specific field of expertise. The Academy runs a basic verification to ensure experts in this database are listed publicly on university or other reputable organisation websites, but does not endorse positions taken by those individuals. For Academy evidence-based statements on COVID-19 questions, please refer to the Rapid Research Information Forum.
The COVID-19 Expert Database has been created to provide a mechanism for governments, the business sector, the research sector, and other decision-makers to easily access the expertise they need to inform their decision making.
Australia’s ability to navigate this fast-changing environment and to recover from it needs inputs from a range of researchers and other experts. All fields of expertise including: science, technology, engineering, mathematics, health, humanities, arts, and social science are needed.
If you have expertise that can contribute to the national and global effort to tackle and recover from COVID-19 and its scientific, health, social, cultural and economic implications, please register here.
When you find an expert, we recommend that you first confirm with them that they are the best person to meet your needs.
If you have any feedback or ideas for future improvement to this database please get in touch.
