2019 Queensland Women in STEM Prize
From astrophysics to brain research, drones, agritech and industrial biotechnology Queensland is at the forefront of scientific innovation.
Every day, our internationally-renowned leaders in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are applying their expertise to ensure economic prosperity and enhance community wellbeing.
Despite this progress, men continue to outnumber women in STEM industries.
