QLD Tall Poppies

The 2019 Queensland Tall Poppies were announced in Brisbane on the 13th of September. 

The Tall Poppy Science Awards, an initiative of the Australian Institute of Policy and Science, aim 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 Queensland Young Tall Poppy Science Awards began in 2001 and has seen over 100 Tall Poppies named from across the state.

The Queensland Young Tall Poppy Awards are supported by the Griffith University, Queensland University of Technology, the office of the Chief Scientist and Queensland Government,  and the University of Queensland
