IERC Awards Night

    The Annual IERC awards were held September 7 at the Ville in Townsville. The IERC awards night ceremony is an important night in the calendar to acknowledge the commitment across the university and by no means least the dedication and commitment of students to undertake higher education programs from diploma studies right through to doctorate studies and beyond as returning graduates willing to share their stories of life after university.

    The awards also showcased some of the important work between JCU and CSIRO aimed at Building Indigenous Research Capacity (BIRC initiative) in the North through the JCU-CSIRO partnership. JCU signed a new umbrella collaboration agreement with The Commonwealth Science and Industrial Organisation (CSIRO) in late 2020 and have been building the relationship through 2021 and into 2022. 

    This new, broader, relationship builds on the partnership held the CSIRO since 2006. The aim is to build on the strengths of the two organisations; creating new knowledge and developing the next generation of researchers.

    The awards night is one of the celebratory initiatives for the JCU-CSIRO partnership team to participate in and award high achieving Indigenous students. It provides opportunities for both institutions to listen to student stories and celebrate student achievements, determination, and commitment. Having the inclusion of key partners like CSIRO in the award night fosters opportunities for students to think about where they wish to go as graduates and consider career opportunities within CSIRO.
