IMNIS was kick-started by our passionate Foundation donors and their friends. These professionals came from a range of STEM-related industries to make a difference. With a common vision to foster an innovation culture, they generously shared their time, expertise and money.

Working with the Academy of Technology and Engineering, they ran three successful IMNIS pilots in Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia in the last two years. This was a collaborative effort with multiple partner groups and ‘friends-of-friends’ involved.

IMNIS would not have been possible without the generous support, energy and time of:

  • Dr Tony Radford AO FTSE
  • Ms Deborah Radford
  • Mr John Kirby AM
  • Professor Peter Lilly FTSE
