By sponsoring the SA Science Excellence and Innovation Awards, you will play a key role in building the global reputation of South Australia as the ‘State of Science’.

The past two decades represent a time of profound global geopolitical, economic and social change. This era has been characterised by waves of significant discoveries driving innovation and the emergence of new technologies across fields in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) which have transformed the way we live now and into the future.

This is an exciting time to be in South Australia as collaboration and connectivity between STEMM researchers, educators, industry and communities build new futures based on excellence and innovation to place South Australia firmly on the world stage as the ‘State of Science’.

The SA Science Excellence and Innovation Awards provide a remarkable opportunity to recognise the work of inspiring STEMM leaders and teams working in research and education institutions, schools, industry and the community.

Last year, the celebration of these Awards attracted its highest attendance in its history, with almost 500 people coming together to celebrate the achievements and importance of those who work to shape the future within and well beyond our State.

I look forward to sharing a great night of celebration with you and to toasting the achievements of those who strive every day to educate, create, collaborate and innovate to transform our future.
