Central to the purpose of the Academy is the recognition and support of outstanding contributions to the advancement of science.
We provide awards for research in fields such as the conservation of endangered Australian vertebrate species, the history of science, population and environment, marine, soil and plant biology.
The Academy supports research through the sponsorship of research conferences that focus on rapidly developing fields.
We award travelling fellowships for the exchange of scientific ideas, to promote Australian scientific capabilities internationally, and facilitate access to international research programs.
