NSW students win inaugural ICT innovation awards


The Australian chapter of India’s National Association of Software and Services Companies, Nasscom, has conferred its inaugural ICT innovation awards on four teams of students at the Universities of Sydney, Western Sydney and Wollongong.

Nasscom received 12 entries from six Universities in the award categories – IT innovation and IT-enabled business innovation – with entries judged by an independent judging panel after students presented their concepts to leaders in the corporate sector.

Students were presented with their awards at CeBIT by India’s Minister of State in the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, Sachin Pilot, and the chairman of NASSCOM Australia, Anu Agrawal, said the content and quality of the presentations to judges was excellent and demonstrated “many fine examples of originality.”

The four winning entries were:
