Kris McCoy  l  Counsellor (Europe), Industry, Science, Energy and Resources, Australian Embassy to France and Permanent Delegation to the OECD

Kris’s role focuses on advancing the relationship 
between Australia and European countries in relation to energy, resources, critical minerals, emissions reduction and climate matters.


Prior to commencing the Counsellor position, Kris was the Senior Executive Officer to the Secretary of the department, Mr David Fredericks, PSM. She operated in the Office of the Secretary both at the former Department of Environment and Energy and at DISER and supported the Secretary and Executive throughout the formation of the new department and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kris held several energy based roles before joining the Office of the Secretary, including leading the Strategic Policy and Governance team during a period of significant energy market

reform and change in Australia. She was also responsible for leading the establishment of Australia’s Energy Security Board and Gas Market Reform Group – both key institutions driving Australia’s energy transition.

Prior to these roles, Kris worked in a range of energy efficiency policy and program areas, culminating in the leadership of Australia’s former Energy Efficiency Opportunities Program.

She supported Dr Finkel in advising the Australian Government on a wide range of science, research, education and innovation policies and issues. A particular highlight of her time with Dr Finkel was the release of Australia’s National Hydrogen Strategy and the first Low Emissions Technology Statement.


Prior to joining the Office of the Chief Scientist, she led international science policy in the department, with responsibility for the Global Innovation Strategy under the National Science and Innovation Agenda. Her section also led the bilateral science and innovation engagement with the European Union and its Member States, the United States of America, Canada, Singapore and Korea.

Sarah previously held senior roles in the peak body Universities Australia, including Policy Director International and Policy Director Research and Innovation, leading work on key policy and engagement documents and processes for the university sector.
