The NSW Science and Engineering Awards were initiated in 2008 to recognise and reward the State's leading researchers in science and engineering for cutting edge work that generates economic, health, environmental or technological benefits for NSW.
The awards aim to engage and involve the NSW research community and the public in promoting the value of science and engineering and to encourage careers in both fields.
Scientists, engineers and teachers are encouraged to read the guidelines and nominate for the awards.
