UON Innovation Awards
University of Newcastle Chancellor Mr Paul Jeans, right, presents a cheque for $10,000 to the 2016 recipient of the Chancellor's Award for Innovation, Dr Yolanda Surjan.
Each year innovative researchers at UON are celebrated for their successful community and industry collaboration, and commercialisation success.
Hosted by Newcastle Innovation since 2009, these awards give UON the opportunity to thank our supporters and celebrate the innovation that’s made the Hunter a true leader across a range of fields of expertise.
In 2016, a new award was introduced; the Chancellor’s Award for Research Innovation. This award provides $10 000 to a University of Newcastle researcher or team who have made a discovery or innovation which potentially leads to a commercial outcome.
