BCCVL wins Research & Development iAward!

The iAwards honours companies at the cutting edge of technology innovation and recognises the achievements of home-grown Australian innovators. The key goal of the iAwards is to discover, recognise and reward the ICT (Information and Communications Technology) innovations that have the potential to, or are already having a positive impact on the community – at home, in the office and on a global scale.

Research and Development Category

Your favourite “one-stop-modelling shop” has been announced as the winner of the Research & Development category which honours organisations who show a boundless commitment and enthusiasm to ICT. Entries were judged on four main criteria and 8 sub-criteria;

  1. Functionalities/Features (user requirements and compatibility and interoperability with other systems)
  2. Proof of Concept (commercial potential and pilot trial success)
  3. Quality/Application of Technology (content & standards and stability & reliability)
  4. Uniqueness (creativity and technologies & innovation)

What next?

The BCCVL are honoured to accept this award amidst so many amazing competitors, with 45 nominations (QLD) submitted across all categories. We’ll now be heading to Melbourne, alongside all other winners and merit recipients, to battle it out at the national iAwards on 25-27 August.

A big thanks to all our partners…

The BCCVL is a multiple partner project and it would not be possible without the vision, skills and expertise of our contributors. Its simplicity hides its technical complexity and without skilled partners like Queensland Cyber Infrastructure Foundation (QCIF), who provide QRIS cloud infrastructure, technical knowledge and integration expertise, the BCCVL would not exist. A big thanks to our lead partners, Griffith University and James Cook University and to our developing partners, Intersect and QCIF. The BCCVL is supported by NeCTAR.

Wish us luck at the iAwards National events!
