The Innovation Hero Award program recognises people who bring great ideas to life, and the role they play in driving economic and social progress.
It recognises Australian-based people or teams that successfully develop a new technology into a commercial product or service and who create great benefit for Australia. The program covers the whole spectrum of engineering and technology commercialisation in Australia.
Previous winners range from people at the cutting edge of academic physics and engineering who have successfully commercialised their discoveries, through research scientists and engineers in industry who have solved major problems, to serial inventors and entrepreneurs whose products have made a difference to everyday lives.
If you know, work with, or know of someone who meets the criteria to be recognised as an Innovation Hero, please let us know right away.
The final date for nominations for this year’s awards is Friday 30 May, 2014. The awards will be presented at our Beyond Earth Innovation Lecture Series in September 2014.
