Southern Innovation a Finalist in the Cool Company Awards

Southern Innovation has been named a finalist in the AusIndustry ‘Innovation’ Award at Anthill’s 4th Annual Cool Company Awards.

Southern Innovation develops, markets and licenses patented pulse processing technologies for the rapid, accurate detection and measurement of radiation. The company was born out of research to review suitable technologies for the accurate and rapid detection of legacy landmines. The resulting technology,  SITORO®, provides a 20-fold improvement in the efficiency of radiation detectors, with wide application in areas such as airport baggage screening, oil exploration, mineral analysis and the early detection of cancer.

“Southern Innovation should be very pleased with its success,” said James Tuckerman, Editor-In-Chief, Anthill Magazine. “Though not a winner this year, making the final three in their category is an outstanding achievement; the Cool Company Awards attracted over 350 nominations from some very cool companies from all across Australia.”

The Anthill Cool Company Awards were launched in 2006, as a way to acknowledge and celebrate Australian companies that are doing things differently to bring about positive change.

The AusIndustry Innovation award, presented by the Hon. Richard Marles, Parliamentary Secretary for Innovation and Industry, recognises companies with the ability to create, nurture and develop game-changing or pattern-breaking ideas that generate a dramatic improvement over current conventional solutions.

The national awards were held at a Cocktail Ceremony at the spectacular Melbourne Recital Centre on Thursday 26th November 2009, where category winners and the ‘Coolest Company Award’ were announced.
