The Academy has hosted the Australian Frontiers of Science symposium since 2003, bringing together the very best young Australian scientists to discuss emerging technologies, new opportunities and exciting cutting-edge advances in their fields. In these symposia, gifted young scientists from universities, government and industry discuss what they do and why, and during this process allow ideas to bridge disciplines.

This year, 70 outstanding early and mid-career scientists from around Australia, with expertise in a broad range of disciplines, will meet to discuss how science can support a successful transition to a green economy. A green economy is one that results in improved human wellbeing and social equity, while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities.

Innovative solutions need to be developed to address the climate, food and energy crises that face Australia and the world today. The 2012 Australian Frontiers of Science — Science for a green economy symposium is a unique opportunity for leading early and mid-career scientists to share ideas and envisage solutions to drive the necessary shift towards a truly sustainable future.

The 2012 Australian Frontiers of Science symposium is generously supported by the Theo Murphy (Australia) Fund, courtesy of the Royal Society of London. The Academy is delighted to have this funding available to enable some of Australia’s brightest young scientists to engage in fresh thinking about a fundamental issue for our future, and to develop networks that will enrich their careers.
