The Curtinnovation Awards represent our commitment to ensuring that exceptional research outcomes translate into new products and services. Established in 2007, the awards are now a focal point of the innovation calendar in Western Australia.
The awards identify new technologies, products and services arising from research at Curtin, and enable us to highlight commercial opportunities at Curtin both internally and to the wider business community.
Previous winners include iCetana, REX Ortho, Renergi and Climate Clever which all started with an idea for a new product and service based on Curtin research. Applications are judged against criteria including the level of innovation and commercial potential of the opportunity.
The world has changed in 2020. It’s never been more important to think innovatively in all industries, from healthcare to IT, resources, education and beyond. Your idea for new technology, a product or service could have a significant, positive impact on the world. For the first time, Curtin is opening its Curtinnovation Awards program to applicants beyond staff and students and is now also accepting applications from prospective students and current and prospective industry collaborators.
The 2020 awards have a prize pool of up to $100,000*.
Applications for the 2020 Curtinnovation Awards have now closed, with the winners of the 2020 Curtinnovation Awards announced on the 20 November 2020.
