The Advance Queensland Expert Panel is an advisory body that brings together successful leaders from across the business, academic, research and education sectors who can provide broad-based expertise and independent advice to government in the implementation of the Advance Queensland initiative.
The experience and expertise of the panel will maximise opportunities and ensure the programs provided through Advance Queensland are being effectively targeted.
The panel will also provide recommendations to government on future directions, opportunities and challenges in regard to science, innovation, economic development and the growth of the knowledge economy and jobs in Queensland.
On occasion, due to their recognised expertise in an identified area, members of the Expert Panel may participate in separate advisory or assessment activities for specific Advance Queensland programs. In these circumstances, all assessors are required to declare any actual or perceived conflicts of interest.
The Expert Panel is a voluntary, non-decision making body.
