Last week was huge week for National recognition of our skills in translational research.
It is a great pleasure to congratulate A/Prof Steve Madden (LPC) and his colleagues from the University of Sydney on being awarded the 2020 Eureka Prize for Outstanding Science in Safeguarding Australia. Steve’s contribution represents a crucial and sustained effort around integrating novel materials on a single chip over many years. Well done to the team for this great recognition.
From the equivalent of the Australian science “Oscars”, now on to the Defence “Oscars”. It is of equal pleasure to congratulate Prof John Close (Head, DQS) on his success at Australian Defence Industry Awards last Thursday evening. Basically, John cleaned up! Not only was he awarded Academic of the Year, was also honoured with the Defence Connect Excellence Award. Well done, John, these awards are great recognition of your National leadership in the Australian University-Defence alliance (more details below).
Last but not least, I have the joy of announcing the promotions outcomes for this year across College and Central panels. Please join me and congratulate;
Level B: Sanjoy Nandi (EME)
Level C: Ludovic Rapp (LPC) and Stuart Szigeti (DQS)
Level D: Vladimir Mangazeev (TP) and Hua Xia (CPF)
Level E: Jong Chow (CGA) and Patrick Kluth (EME)
If you have comments or suggestions regarding the proposed change process please contact me directly or Organisational Change. I am always happy to meet and discuss the intent of the proposed changes.
Have a good week.
