VIC Tall Poppies

The 2020 VIC Tall poppies were announced virtually on the 14th of October.

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 Tall Poppy Campaign has been in operation in Victoria since 1999, with Young Tall Poppy Science Awards ceremonies being held each year. More than 150 Young Tall Poppies have been named Victoria during that time.
