The Heavy Ion Accelerator Facility’s Space Irradiation Beamline (HIAF-SIBL) team was delighted to attend the Australian Space Summit and Awards Night early last week in the capacity of the Academic Research Team of the Year finalist.

The team has enjoyed two days of meeting the best the Australian Space Industry has to offer in Sydney while promoting HIA Accelerator’s Space Radiation Testing capability.

From meeting enthusiastic potential collaborators and hearing fascinating talks – detailing Defence capabilities, the need for an appropriately educated workforce, and diversity in the sector – to acknowledging the amazing work done by so many individuals and groups during Tuesday night’s awards, this year’s event was certainly one to remember!

A special thanks to our Board Member Sally-Ann Williams, CEO Cicada Innovations for her support at the event. We extend our congratulations to the Award winners Professor Anna Moore, Australian National University, Julia Gibney, Nova Systems and the Curtain University team.
