iAwards connect and shine light on Australia's leading innovators
Published: 31 August 2017
Last night the spotlight was on Australia's leading digital technology innovators at the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) National iAwards Gala.
The National iAwards are one of 130 events being held during Victoria's Digital Innovation Festival (23 August – 6 September), with the Victorian Government being a major partner.
Known as DIF, the Festival is showcasing the state's vibrant tech ecosystem and celebrating the entrepreneurs, business, students and researchers that create the "Victorian Difference" and make Melbourne Australia's Top Tech City.
Seven Victorian organisations received recognition for their commitment to driving new partnerships and solutions across the economy from health to transport, medical treatment to infrastructure and recruitment.
