Do you know an excellent early career scientist or technologist?
Nominations are now open for the ICM Agrifood Awards, which recognise and acknowledge the outstanding work of two early career scientists or technologists.
The awardees will have achieved substantial peer/industry recognition for their work in a field critical to continued improvement of the overall Australian food sector in the past five years.
Winners each receive $5000, sponsored by ICM Agribusiness, one of Australia’s major agribusiness groups. The Awards are administered by the Academy.
The Selection Committee will assess all eligible nominations against the following key criteria, that the nominee has:
- demonstrated excellence, innovation and impact in a field related to food and agriculture in Australia
- been acknowledged by peers for outstanding contributions to the food and agriculture sector in the past five years
- advanced the standing of the broad profession of agriculture and food
The nominee must be 40 years or under on the first day of the year in which the award is made (with allowance made for career breaks due to family or carer responsibilities).
Nominations close at 12pm AEST on Friday 12 April.
