 bg_veski

The Victoria Prize celebrates leadership, determination and creativity. It also highlights the many ways in which research and development of international significance are conducted in Victoria.

Two prizes, both worth $50,000, will recognise an outstanding leader in life sciences and in physical sciences.

Both prizes will reward a scientific discovery or technological innovation, or a series of such achievements that significantly advances knowledge.  The clear potential to produce a commercial outcome or other substantial benefit to the community will be highly regarded.

Last year’s Victoria Prize winners were:

  • Professor Ana Deletic, a world leader in storm-water management and the only female professor of civil engineering in the Group of Eight universities
  • Professor Terence (Terry) Speed, a bioinformatician from WEHI who is one of the world’s most-cited mathematicians.
