To broaden the diversity of voices on the Academy’s governing body, during 2020 and 2021, the Academy implemented a pilot scheme through which researchers benefitting from Academy careers programmes served as Co-opted Council members. Their purpose was to provide valuable perspective and representation from a major sector of Academy stakeholders. In 2021 Council approved the continuation and formalisation of this scheme with successive cohorts identified through a transparent and competitive process overseen by the Academy’s Nominations Committee.

Emerging Research Leader members of Council do not take on trusteeship of the Academy and do not have voting rights on Council decisions. Appointments are for one year in the first instance, renewable for a consecutive year, subject to Council agreement.
