Duncan Challen, General Manager, Business Development for Sydney Science Park is looking forward to presenting the Eureka Prize to the winner at a gala award dinner at Sydney Town Hall on the evening of Wednesday 28 August 2019.   

The Eureka Prizes are a key part of the Australian Museum’s role at the forefront of Australian scientific research, education and awareness. With $170,000 in prize money and recognition nationally and internationally for winners, the Eureka Prizes are seen as the ‘Oscars’ of Australian Science. 

Director and CEO of the Australian Museum, Kim McKay AO, said the finalists in the 2019 Australian Museum Eureka Prizes reflect the many spheres in which science has a crucial impact – medicine, industry, environment, healthcare, education and more.  “As the finalists in this year’s Eureka Prizes show, Australian scientists are leading the world in many areas and their research is at the cutting edge of discovery and development,” Ms McKay said.
