InnovationAus Awards for Excellence

Launched in 2021, the industry-acclaimed InnovationAus Awards for Excellence was the first of its kind to recognise achievement in technology development and commercialisation. The Awards shone a light on the sense of urgency from government and industry to recognise and support innovation from within Australia’s vast talent pool across research, industry, and universities. The 2021 finalists showcased an amazing depth and breadth of talent and ideas, with climate tech, quantum, and space, having a strong turnout across the broad swathe of sectors. They represented the nation’s most innovative start-ups and scaleups, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with giants of industry. This year’s Awards will go even further to bring together industry to meet, galvanise ideas and celebrate achievements.
