Our governance

The Autism CRC was established in March 2013 as a company limited by guarantee. The governance and management structure promote effective cooperation between our participants and end-users, which ensures translation-focused research and development.

We ensure this by:

  • involving members of the autistic community throughout our research process.
  • including significant industry representation and end-user representation on our Board and its committees, along with representatives from our research participants.
  • involving end-users directly in our research and development as participants, enhancing project design and the applicability and uptake of outcomes.
  • engaging our three Program Directors heavily with end-users and in the management of our activities.
