Minister Somyurek said the Andrews Labor Government will offer two Victoria Prizes for Science and Innovation, in physical sciences and life sciences, alongside 12 Victoria Fellowships – six in physical sciences and six in life sciences.

“We’re supporting Victorians in science, engineering and technology, to research in the areas that will help create jobs and grow our economy,” said Minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade, Adem Somyurek.

He added: “The prizes and fellowships are a significant opportunity and I encourage Victorians in the relevant areas to apply”.

The 2015 Victoria Prizes For Science and Innovation, valued at $50,000 each, recognise outstanding leaders in science and their research contributions to the Victorian community.

The Victoria Fellowships, valued at $18,000 each, support researchers in science, engineering and technology, who are in the early stages of their career and would benefit from an international study mission.

Recipients of these awards in 2014 included researchers in nanomedicines for the treatment of cancers and cardiovascular disease, and translational neuroscience in the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s.

Other research areas included sports engineering, cloud computing, materials science, environmental health, preventative therapies and mental health.

Applications for the 2015 Victoria Prizes for Science and Innovation and Victoria Fellowships are now open and close Thursday, 25 June 2015.

The two Victoria Prize recipients and 12 Victoria Fellows will be announced at an awards ceremony later this year.
