Excellence in Innovation Awards 2018

The Awards for Excellence in Innovation 2018 were presented at Collaborate | Innovate | 2018  on Tuesday 15 May at the Aerial UTS Function Centre, Sydney.

The CRC Association Awards for Excellence in Innovation were initiated in 1999 to recognise outstanding examples of the transfer of CRC research results, knowledge and technologies that have been developed for a wide range of users of research, including the community, companies and government agencies.

Up to four awards were available for innovation with demonstrated impact for Australia. The impact might arise from innovation in the application and use of research or from innovation in education and training or public outreach activities. The judges were delighted to present three awards in 2018.
