ACOLA is the forum whereby Australia’s Learned Academies and our Associate Members come together to contribute expert advice to inform national policy; and to develop innovative solutions to complex global problems and emerging national needs.
Evidence-based interdisciplinary advice
Our research and advice process
Our unique project process leverages ACOLA’s ability to bring together Australia’s learned academies and collaborate with Australia’s finest researchers, scientists, scholars and practitioners.
Our delivery models
ACOLA brings together Australia’s greatest minds through workshops and studies to explore important immediate through to medium- to longer-term opportunities and challenges for our society. These can range from technology assessments to policy issues, such as opportunities to help jump-start our economy or mitigate future shocks. We welcome opportunities to explore and scope areas of specific interest to different governments and other stakeholders.
