The Clunies Ross Awards will be presented at the 2018 ATSE Innovation Dinner on Wednesday 13 June in Melbourne at the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins.
Now in its 27th year, the Clunies Ross Awards have recognised contributions by dedicated individuals to the application of technology for the benefit of Australia. In recognition of the complex nature of such activities, the Clunies Ross Awards are presented in three separate categories: Entrepreneur of the Year, Knowledge and Commercialisation, and Innovation.
The Clunies Ross Awards are the nation’s premier annual awards for innovation commercialisation and bring together Australia’s top leaders and innovators from research, industry, academia and government and provide a valuable networking opportunity. Details on registrations for the Innovation Dinner for both individuals and tables of 10 can be found on the Innovation Dinner registration page
