Department of Health and Ageing Organisation Structure
The National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) consolidates within a single
national organisation the often independent functions of research funding and development of
advice. One of its strengths is that it brings together and draws upon the resources of all
components of the health system, including governments, medical practitioners, nurses and allied
health professionals, researchers, teaching and research institutions, public and private program
managers, service administrators, community health organisations, social health researchers and
consumers. The functions of the NHMRC come from the statutory obligations conferred by the
National Health and Medical Research Council Act 1992.
The Act sets down four statutory obligations on the directions taken by NHMRC. These
to raise the standard of individual and public health throughout Australia ;
to foster the development of consistent health standards between the various States and
to foster medical research and training and public health research and training throughout
Australia ; and
to foster consideration of ethical issues relating to health.

About The National Academies Forum
Established in 1995, the Forum provides a basis for cooperative activities by the four
Academies and a common point of access to the Academies for outside
organisations and individuals. It promotes a unified national vision, helping to
overcome the difficulties that have often separated science, technology and
engineering from the social sciences and the humanities.
National Academies Forum policy is determined by an Executive, which normally
meets twice a year. The Executive is attended by the President of each Academy or
his or her nominee, and up to three other representatives of each Academy.
The Presidency of the Forum rotates among the academies every two years. The
current President is Dr John Zillman who is the President of the Australian Academy
of Technological Sciences and Engineering.
The Forum is funded by a grant-in-aid from the Department of Education, Science
and Training, and seeks supplementary sponsorship for specific programs and

The Academy was founded in 1954 by Australian Fellows of the Royal Society of London with the
distinguished physicist Sir Mark Oliphant as founding President. It was granted a Royal Charter
establishing the Academy as an independent body but with government endorsement. The
Academy's Constitution was modeled on that of the Royal Society of London. It receives
government grants towards its activities but has no statutory obligation to government.
The Fellowship of the Academy is made up of about 380 of Australia's top scientists,
distinguished in the physical and biological sciences and their applications. Each year sixteen
scientists, judged by their peers to have made an exceptional contribution to knowledge in their
field, are elected to Fellowship of the Academy. Election is subject to a searching appraisal of the
candidate's published works, including reference to leading scientific researchers around the
world. Fellows are employed by universities, CSIRO, government and private research
organisations. They contribute to the Academy in an honorary capacity by serving on Council,
committees and as advisers.
The objectives of the Academy are to promote science through a range of activities.
It has defined four major program areas:
The objectives of the Academy recognition of outstanding contributions to science.
Education and public awareness.

The Academy (ATSE) is an independent, non-government organisation dedicated to the
promotion in Australia of scientific and engineering knowledge to practical purposes. The
Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE) was formally
inaugurated as the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences in Melbourne in February
1976. The concept of an applied sciences academy had its origins in the late 1960’s when the
Australian Industrial Research Group (AIRG), an informal association of directors and managers
of industrial research and development laboratories, appointed a small committee to study the
proposal for such a body put forward by the late Dr W A S Butement the then recently retired
Chief Defence Scientist.
The objectives of the Academy
the development and practice of existing and new technologies;
the development of technology for more effective management of natural resources and
improved competitiveness of industries and services;
the study of the effects of technology on the quality of life of the community and on the
physical and sociological environment;
public services dependent on technological sciences and engineering;
the development of technology for national security and the prevention, control and
mitigation of natural disasters; and
technology for ecologically sustainable development.
