Celebrating Australian Science and Technology Entrepreneurs
Earlier this month the Academy of Technology and Engineering (APPLIED) presented the annual Clunies Ross Awards at a gala dinner in Sydney. The awards recognise people who have shared their vision and knowledge to apply technology for the benefit of Australia.
The winners were:
Dr Jane Oppenheim, who is the Scientific and Operations Director at Ego Pharmaceuticals. Her award was given for work done to continuously improve people’s lives through the production of skin products based on strong science.
Academy fellow, Professor Anthony Weiss AM from the University of Sydney, who invented and then commercialised a kind of synthetic polymer skin used for wound repair and the treatment of scars.
Academy fellow , Professor Thorsten Trupke FTSE and Adjunct Associate Professor Robert Bardos from the University of NSW who developed a technology that uses photoluminescence to quickly and accurately test photovoltaic cells during production.
You can see videos of the winners and listen to podcast interviews on the APPLIED website.
