SMI Memorial Awards 2023

Join us to recognise the work of SMI Higher Degree by Research students.

The full-day program is an opportunity to hear about the innovative research being conducted by our students - the day features presentations from the award recipients, student poster displays and a panel discussion with industry.

The Dan Alexander Memorial Award to support SMI research students to seed fund the commercialisation of their research.

The Ian Morley Prize awarded to a research student from WH Bryan Mining Geology Research Centre (BRC) or Julius Kruttschnitt Research Centre (JKMRC) on the basis of academic achievement,  work experience, leadership and contribution to the life of the Centre.

The Bill Whiten Memorial Prize to support a research student engaging in process control and model development at UQ to  complete their thesis or participate in a local or international conference.
