Background: AIRG Awards

AIRG Achievement Recognition Award

The AIRG Achievement Recognition will be awarded at AIRG National Meetings each year, to a current industrial research manager, researcher and/or group of researchers making the most outstanding Australasian industrial research management and or industrial research contribution during the previous year (or in recent times). 

There will be two awards per year - one award to celebrate an outstanding technological achievement from a major Australasian Industry, and the other award will be presented to a similar achievement from  small-to-medium enterprises (SME's) based in Australia or New Zealand. The presentation of these will be at the AIRG Summer and Winter Conferences respectively. 

AIRG's sister organisation, the Industrial Research Institute (IRI) presents a high profile award at its national meetings, and AIRG sees this as important in part of its role.
