Six teams of respected and eminent researchers have been announced that will assist in identifying Australian research infrastructure capability by assessing what we have and what the nation might need in the future.
The teams of experts will examine the areas of: health, physics, environment, culture, national security and underpinning research.
This process is integral to the development of a discussion paper for the 2016 National Research Infrastructure Roadmap, which will be released later in the year.
The list of the areas and respective capability experts is below. Their current position and employer have been included to show the range of expertise.
