Eureka! Griffith University shines at annual awards
Congratulations to World Science Festival Brisbane partner Griffith University for their brilliant win at the 2017 awards.
Presented annually by the Australian Museum since 1990, the Eureka Prizes are the country’s most comprehensive national science awards, honouring excellence in Research and Innovation, Leadership, Science Engagement and School Science.
Griffith University took the 2017 NSW Office of Environment and Heritage Eureka Prize for Environmental Research for their Catchment Sediment Budget Research Team.
The team was recognised for their work contributing to the identification of sediment sources and their impact on the Great Barrier Reef.
Along with climate change, poor water quality from catchment runoff is a major threat to the Great Barrier Reef. The Catchment Sediment Budget Research Team has transformed how sediment sources are identified and targeted, resulting in a significant shift in government policy and practice.
