Our students – the next generation of digital innovators – are developing some world-first technology and research that is or will make a positive difference in the way we live and do business!
This is most evident from the six 30th INCITE Awards finalists who have made it to the Stage 2 Judging phase.
“From cyber security applications to increasing access to health services for all members of our community and advancing environmental management techniques, WA’s young innovators are really finding sustainable solutions to modern challenges,” commented Chief Judge, Celia Jordaan.
