I am delighted to invite you to be a sponsor for the 2021 South Australian Science Excellence and Innovation Awards.

As a 2021 sponsor, your contribution will directly support South Australia’s science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM) leaders who inspire our future workforce and deliver ideas, innovation and impact to support a healthy environment, economy and community.

Now in its 17th year, the Awards recognise South Australian individuals and teams that have made discoveries, collaborated with research or industry partners within and beyond South Australia, or harnessed new knowledge to drive innovation and deliver impact in STEMM.

It is also an opportunity to recognise the work of inspirational STEMM practitioners, leaders and teams that deliver value every day in schools, educational institutions, in research laboratories and industries across Adelaide and regions.

There is a real appetite from our community to learn more about South Australian science and through these Awards, we are able to profile the achievements of our finalists across digital platforms.

 

We were delighted that during the 2020 Awards celebration, social media posts and videos generated more than 144,000 Twitter impressions from organic tweets, and over 8,000 follow up engagements.  

The COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the challenges of bushfires and natural disasters, recognise that great science, research and diversity of ideas delivers the quality of evidence that informs governments, businesses, communities, and individuals to make the best decision possible.

In supporting the 2021 South Australian Science Excellence and Innovation Awards as a partner, you will be playing a key role in ensuring our state grows the talent to educate, create, collaborate and innovate so we can continue to meet future challenges using this remarkable ‘State of Science’.
