Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering (ATSE): 2019 Clunies Ross Awards

Clunies Ross Awards recognise the contributions of dedicated individuals who have shared their vision and knowledge with others to apply technology for the benefit of Australia.

The awards are offered in three categories, with a single winner in each category:

  • Clunies Ross Entrepreneur of the Year Award
  • Clunies Ross Knowledge Commercialisation Award
  • Clunies Ross Innovation Award

Clunies Ross Entrepreneur of the Year Award

Open to an individual winner only

A typical awardee will have played an integral role in the discovery and translation of a major technology-based product or service that has led to financial success and demonstrated impact for Australia, and in which they have personally had a significant input in the inventorship and/or development of the technology. Such a person would typically have business responsibility as a CEO or a senior manager and may be working in either an early stage SME or a mature company environment. The individual will have been associated with the development of the technology and have overseen its deployment into commercial use with economic returns to Australia. Such individuals display long-term commitment to achieve the successful end use of the technology they invent or develop.

Typically, this would be an entrepreneurial person leading an activity that is disrupting well-established vendors or commercialising new opportunities through innovative use of new technologies.

Clunies Ross Knowledge Commercialisation Award

Open to an individual or a small team (normally of up to 3 people)

For those who have been responsible for the discovery, development and adoption of a technology and for sharing their knowledge leading to commercialisation, for example by licensing, with a significant financially successful outcome.

Typically, this could be a researcher and/or developer (or research or development team) in a Public Funded Research Organisation, university and/or a private company who has successfully passed a product/invention/service to a third party to commercialise and has generated significant revenue to the person and /or organisation(s) they are associated with.

Clunies Ross Innovation Award

Open to an individual or a small team (normally of up to 3 people)

For those who have been responsible for the discovery, development and adoption of a technology that has significantly improved societal and/or industry capabilities. In this case, the primary outcome is not a direct financial benefit but has measurable broad community or industry impact.

Typically, this could be a researcher or developer (or team) in a Public Funded Research Organisation, university or a private company, where the outcome is in the form of industry development, or measureable improvement in community well-being or sustainability measures. Examples could include technologies that improve remote monitoring of agriculture/ecosystems, or improved access to remote learning and health care.
