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.

COVID-19 Expert Database

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.
