A college of Fellows from around the world develops and implements the Economic and Science Group’s work program. The Fellows include senior and mid-career researchers who are leading advancement in science and/or economics and are deeply engagemed with policy in their respective fields. Fellows also include former public servants and distinguished individuals from the private sector and civil society who understand how to make the world a more secure place today and tomorrow.
The E&S Group's work program, strategic direction and public engagement are led by two distinguished economists with world-leading research expertise and leadership in the food, energy, water and biosecurity fields: Professor Quentin Grafton and Professor Tom Kompas. The Fellows' engagement with the science-policy interface draws on the guidance and knowledge of the Group's distinguished patron: Sir John Beddington.
