FAQ Victoria Prize for Science and Innovation

Q1. Can I put in a Joint-Nomination for the Victoria Prize for Science and Innovation?

The Victoria Prize for Science and Innovation is typically awarded to an individual. However, it is recognised that outstanding achievement is often the result of long-term collaboration between individuals making equivalent and complementary contributions.

The Victoria Prize for Science and Innovation, therefore, may be awarded to a maximum of two individuals in each category, if the outstanding achievement can be clearly shown to be the outcome of a long-term collaboration. Please click here for eligibility requirements.
