Posted 23/1/2018

The organiser of CIVSEC 2018, Industry Defence and Security Australia Limited, has announced a new program of national innovation awards for Australia’s Civil Security professionals.

The Innovation Awards were launched in 2012 by the parent company of Industry Defence and Security Australia Limited, the Aerospace Maritime Defence and Security Foundation of Australia Limited.  Since then, Australian companies and researchers have been presented with SME Innovation Grants and Young Innovator Scholarships worth $230,000 at the Pacific International Maritime Exposition, the Land Forces Exposition and the Australian International Airshow and Aerospace & Defence Exposition.

The Innovation Awards at CIVSEC 2018 will have six categories in total, with two cash awards of $15,000 each, one for the most innovative Small to Medium Enterprise (SME) and one for the most promising Young Innovator.

The Awards will be presented for the first time by the Chairman of Industry Defence and Security Australia Limited, Vice Admiral Chris Ritchie AO (Rtd), during the CIVSEC 2018 Congress in Melbourne, 1-3 May. 

Nominations for the CIVSEC 2018 Innovation Awards are now open and will close on 12 March 2018 with a short list of candidates drawn up by 2 April 2018. More Information
