Promotion of Science

The SIEF’s contribution to the promotion of science research and education in Australia includes supporting research undertaken by early career scientists, the appointment or joint appointment of scientists to university positions, and scholarships and fellowships including:

CSIRO Macquarie University Chair in Wireless Communications:

CSIRO has a long history of collaboration with Macquarie University in the field of wireless communications. The CSIRO-Macquarie University Chair in Wireless Communications was established to support further development of Australia’s world-leading capabilities in this field. Following his appointment to the CSIRO Macquarie University Chair in Wireless Communication, Dr. Stephen Hanly will spend the majority of his time accelerating research at Macquarie University into wireless communication technologies and the balance collaborating with CSIRO researchers at the ICT Centre in Marsfield.

Lindau Fellowships:

The best young Australian scientists will have the chance to be mentored by Nobel Prize winners, thanks to a new collaboration between the Science and Industry Endowment Fund and the Australian Academy of Science. From 2013, support for attendance at the annual meeting of Nobel Laureates at Lake Constance, Germany will be provided through the Science and Industry Endowment Fund – Australian Academy of Science Fellowships to the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings.
