Nominations are now open for the Western Australian Science Hall of Fame.
The Western Australian Science Hall of Fame was established in 2007 to recognise exceptional lifelong contributions from Western Australians to science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM). Inductees are announced at the annual Premier’s Science Awards presentations.
Each year, members of the community are invited to nominate outstanding Western Australians who are pre-eminent in their field to be considered for induction into the WA Science Hall of Fame.
To be admitted to the WA Science Hall of Fame, an individual must:
- have undertaken a substantial portion of their work in Western Australia
- have a substantial track record as a scientist
- be internationally renowned in their field
- have been instrumental in developing a school of thought and/or policy in WA
- be engaged in outreach
- have been influential in the mentorship of others through developing the careers of STEM practitioners
- be a member of a learned academy or be of similar stature.
Nominators are encouraged to resubmit nominations for any nominees not inducted into the WA Science Hall of Fame, including any new information or achievements. Suitable Hall of Fame nominations from previous years may be considered in subsequent years at the discretion of the judging panel.
