New Expat Application Round Launched for 2005-06

22 August

Victoria took the veski message to Cambridge University in England recently to launch the 2005-06 call for applications for the veski innovation fellowships.

Inaugural VESKI Victorian Innovation Fellowship recipient Professor Andrew Holmes joined the Victorian Minister for Innovation, The Hon. John Brumby MP, to target and attract high calibre Australian expatriates back to Victoria.

"Everyone agrees that Australian expatriates are a valuable resource and that we need to do more to connect with them," Mr. Brumby said.

veski innovation fellowships are awarded annually to outstanding Australian expatriates in the fields of science, technology or design. These funds must be matched with financial funding and in-kind contributions from a host organisation such as an Academic/Research Institution or Company. The funds are to be used to support the return of the successful applicant to work in Victoria.

The format of this application is set out in the veski innovation fellowship application form available together with full application details from the veski website at www.veski.org.au.
