About the DuPont Australia and New Zealand Innovation Awards


Innovation has never been more important.

With the challenges of the global financial crisis still resonating in many sectors, new ideas, technologies and products and services are the key to growing a stronger, more competitive economy. 

At DuPont, we know this well.

Since 1802, DuPont has put its science to work by creating sustainable solutions to a better, safer healthier life for people everywhere. Innovation is the source of those solutions.

In the tradition of DuPont innovation, the DuPont Australia and New Zealand Innovation Awards recognise the commercialisation of outstanding science and technology.

Entries are submitted at no charge to the entrant.

Three finalists will be chosen in each of the categories. Winners will be announced at the DuPont Australia and New Zealand Innovation Awards presentation in May 2011 in Melbourne.

The prestigious DuPont CEO’s Award will be selected from the category finalists and awarded to the most innovative product, technology, application or service that makes the most significant contribution to sustainability.

For the first time in 2011, the winner of The CSIRO Young Innovator Award will win a special prize of lab time to the value of $AUD20,000 with the CSIRO.

‘Innovation is a critical lever at all times for DuPont.’

Ellen Kullman, CEO and Chair.
