Science and Industry Endowment Fund Advisory Council
Industry, Innovation and Science (part of the Jobs and Innovation Portfolio)
The Science and Industry Endowment Fund (SIEF) Advisory Council was established in October 2009 by the CSIRO Board Endowment Committee, at the request of the SIEF Trustee as a result of the gift of monies to SIEF by CSIRO to rejuvenation of the fund. The primary role of the Advisory Council is to assist the Trustee in the determination of application of SIEF monies which aligns with the SIEF's objectives. The Advisory Council must have no fewer than five members, with a majority of members who are not employed by CSIRO. The Trustee is not a member of the Council but has a right to attend any meeting and to be heard at such meetings. Meetings of the Advisory Council are held three times per year, or as required, to provide advice to the Trustee on the application of the SIEF to specific research projects, to develop and consider research initiatives and direction of the SIEF and associated issues.
