Data Innovation Award Sponsored by Digital Health CRC
The importance of promoting the value and use of data as a national resource both within and external to the health and medical research sector is more prevalent today than ever before.
In its third year, the Data Innovation Award is presented to an individual or team that has developed the most innovative method of gathering, making available, processing or interpreting data in a way that advances health and medical research, including matching of data and data sets which have not previously been linked.
Individuals and teams from all fields of health and medical research are eligible for nomination, not just those who specialise in the manipulation of data. Innovations that provide new methodologies for research or have increased the availability of data for research are encouraged.
This year we are searching for a team or organisation that has demonstrated the importance of community understanding as a pivotal role in their project for collection and use of big data.
Questions for the nominators to address – please keep your submission to 700-800 words:
- Describe how the nominee has demonstrated innovation in the management, design and development or use of data.
- How has this data innovation been applied or translated; or if it has not yet concluded, what is the research’s intended application?
- How did the nominee differentiate the innovation from existing data practices being used in the HMR sector?
- How has the nominee disseminated or promoted the innovation to the relevant end users?
- Nominations can be for any individual, team or organisation that meets the criteria for that Award category.
- Research Australia Membership is not a prerequisite nor is it of any advantage or disadvantage during the nomination process.
- Each nominee requires a primary and a secondary nominator.
- The primary nominator must be an employee of a current (financial) member organisation of Research Australia. A person can only be the primary nominator across a maximum of two Award Categories.
- The secondary nominator (can be an individual, team or organisation) and need not be a Research Australia member.
- Confirmation of Nomination: Primary nominators will receive an email confirming details of their nomination. Please check junk email if confirmation email is not received.
