Regional Development Australia Northern Inland has been talking to businesses and organisations around the region in recent weeks. Spring is a busy time, so the one week extension should help ensure that a quality regionally representative field of entries are received. So far, a good regional spread of entries have received but more examples of innovation are being sought from the Liverpool and Moree Plains, Tamworth, Inverell and the Gwydir Shire. We are particularly keen to see how innovative the manufacturing and engineering sector is in our region. Hopefully, our engineering businesses can make the most of this extended time and get an entry in. Our region needs your positive story.
Businesses, public and not-for-profit organisations, together with the 13 local councils of the Northern Inland NSW region are being urged to submit entries for the 8th annual Regional Development Australia Northern Inland (RDANI) Innovation Awards.
Simply go to the Awards’ website:www.niia.com.auto enter or find out more information.
