UNSW Inventor of the Year Awards

Entries for the 2010 UNSW Inventor of the Year Awards are now open.

Presented annually by NewSouth Innovations, the UNSW Inventor of the Year Awards
recognise and reward inventors that are making the world a better place.

Boasting a total cash prize pool of $28,000, the awards are open to UNSW academics and
students who are commercialising their research with NewSouth Innovations, the
university’s commercialisation company. This year’s awards will introduce a new Student
Inventor of the Year category and a category to recognise Intellectual Property Notifications

NewSouth Innovations annually receives in the order of 100 new IPNs. These are the
starting point for commercialising new inventions that can make a positive impact on the
world. All IPNs submitted in the 12 months to 30 June 2010 will automatically be entered
for the IPN award.
