The Section speakers, Staff Council, Equal Opportunities Officers and the Disability Liaison Officers make up the workforce representation of the academy.
Scientists in full-time employment at the academy can be elected as section speakers. Two spokespersons are appointed to speak on behalf of each section and they are authorised to represent the section’s scientific interests vis-à-vis the Executive Committee.
The staff council represents all employees of the academy. It fulfils the same role as a works council and its members are elected for five years.
