I would again like to thank my fellow directors and acknowledge the tireless efforts of Mr Greg Sword AM – as the only veski founding director still serving on the veski board today.
At the end of May, we delivered the third and final veski fast smarts – a premier event held as part of Melbourne Knowledge Week. Daniel Prohasky took out the title of 2019 veski fast smarts Innovator of the Year. veski also announced its new venture with Yoinki’s free mobile fundraising app. Don’t forget there is still time before 30 June to make a donation to the veski foundation currently supporting the
veski sustainable agriculture fellowships (any donation over $2 is tax deductible).
Nominations and applications for the 2019 Victoria Prize for Science & Innovation and the Victoria Fellowships are now open! Please join me in spreading the word and act now to nominate candidates for these prestigious awards.
Lastly, since final deliberations are underway – stay tuned for news of the recipient(s) of the 2019 veski innovation fellowships.
