The Scientific Research Committee

The Scientific Research Committee is an accredited panel of scientists who, as required under the Income Tax Assessment Act, must approve all projects to be funded from the Foundation’s Research Fund. They assess the scientific merit and technical feasibility of research proposals. The final decision on which projects are funded rests with the Council. Members of the Scientific Research Committee serve in a voluntary capacity.

The current members are:

(Chair) Professor Jennifer Firn (Queensland University of Technology)

Professor Richard Williams (University of Queensland)

Professor Betsy Jackes (James Cook University)

Dr Jason Bragg (Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney)

Professor Angela Moles (University of New South Wales)

Dr. Siegy Krauss (Kings Park and Botanic Gardens)

Associate Professor Rachel Gallagher (University of Western Sydney)
