CLOSING DATE EXTENDED
MESSAGE from Mr Bruce Kean, Chairman, ATSE Clunies Ross Board of Governors:
Nominations for the 2009 ATSE Clunies Ross Awards, which recognise Australia’s pre-eminent scientists and technologists who have bridged the gap between research and the marketplace, will now close on 31 July 2008.
The ATSE Clunies Ross Awards are awarded to people who have persisted with their ideas, often against the odds, to the point that their innovations are making a real difference economically, environmentally, and socially.
Speaking at the 2008 Presentation Dinner at the Sofitel Brisbane on 14 May, I said:
“Like Sir Ian Clunies Ross, in whose honour the awards are named, this year’s winners are visionary. They each have the rare talent that has made them Australia’s top commercially successful scientists and innovators by being able to marry technological and business expertise to create true success. Each of these winners lead innovation in their field and their successful commercialisation of science is not only inspirational but provides Australia with a competitive edge in the world marketplace.”
I urge you to participate in this aspect of ATSE’s mission – acclaiming success – by nominating successful colleagues who meet the nomination criteria, which can be reviewed on the ATSE website – link to ATSE Clunies Ross website at bottom of homepage.
The nomination form is available for download from here.
Further information is available from Cathryn Little (email@example.com) or (03) 9340 1209.
Please feel free to nominate a colleague.
