Excellence in Innovation Awards 2019

The Awards for Excellence in Innovation 2019 were presented at Collaborate | Innovate | 2019  on Tuesday 29 May at the Hilton, Adelaide.

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.

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 five awards in 2019.
