Eco Innovator November 2011
Innovation Hero Awards
The Warren Centre for Advanced
Engineering at the University of Sydney is calling for nominations for
its 2012 Innovation Heroes Award. The Award recognizes Australia's greatest
innovators - "people who have created successful products or services
from brilliant engineering ideas or inventions".
"The Innovation Heroes
Award recognizes innovations that were conceived and developed in Australia
by Australian individuals and companies, and that have been profitably
commercialized or otherwise delivered real value. It is open to individuals
and teams, in small and large companies," says the Warren Centre.
The annual awards are made
to someone who has taken a new technology, developed it, turned it into
a product or service, raised capital and commenced sales. The products
must originate from activities in Australia. The commercialization should
be profitable, and significant financial benefits should flow to Australia.
The products or processes should
also feature high achievements in engineering technology.
