2024 New Fellows Showcase and ATSE Awards – The Innovation Opportunity

Better living through applied science and technology

We can all name those home-grown science and technology breakthroughs which jump to mind which have fundamentally changed our lives – penicillin, bank notes, the black box flight recorder, the bionic ear, WiFi, the pacemaker, spray on skin, Google Maps. But what are the next 10, 50, 100 innovations that will change our lives for the better? How can our R&D system best nourish new innovation? What needs to happen to create a science and tech landscape to support exciting emerging ideas to flourish and become our next breakthroughs?

The 2024 Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE) New Fellows Showcase and Awards Gala Dinner will celebrate exceptional Australian ingenuity, and how to nurture, grow and sustain it.

Come to Melbourne and join us for these special occasionsEarly bird tickets are available now!
