Griffith Hack is again showing its support for Australian innovation and commercialisation by sponsoring the 2017 Curtinnovation Awards held by Curtin University in Western Australia for the seventh year in a row.

The awards recognise the efforts of Curtin staff and students working towards the development and commercialisation of technology-based products and services.

“We are excited to support the Curtinnovation Awards,” Griffith Hack Principal Andreas Hartmann said.

“Awards programs like these encourage and inspire the innovative spirit of students and researchers to develop new technologies that improve lives.”

Curtin University IP Commercialisation Director Rohan McDougall said  Curtin was focused on developing a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship.

“The Curtinnovation Awards is an important part of our program to reward and support commercial application of research outcomes," he said.

Applicants for the awards have the chance to share in a prize pool worth $45,000.

The winners will be announced at an event on September 15.
