ACT Tall Poppies

The Young Tall Poppy Science Awards, an initiative of the Australian Institute of Policy and Science, aims to recognise excellence in research as well as enthusiasm for communicating science beyond the walls of the laboratory. The Awards are widely considered to be an early indicator of Australia’s future scientific leaders, identifying excellent early career scientists.

The ACT Young Tall Poppy Science Awards first started in 2002. More than 50 scientists have been awarded since.
