In order to make informed decisions upon investments in astronomy infrastructure, AAL relies upon strategic and technical advice from its advisory committees. Facilitated and coordinated engagement between astronomers and industry is a priority of the decadal plan.
AAL’s members are all Australian research organisations with a substantial astronomical research capability and therefore it is the ideal organisation to coordinate that engagement. The Industry Engagement Advisory Committee (IEAC) will provide expert advice on AAL activities in the area and more broadly on sector-wide requirements.
IEAC will meet quarterly via video conference.
The AAL Board will appoint members to IEAC in November. Appointments will be made for one- or two-year terms from January 1, 2024.
