veski highlights
As our 10th anniversary year draws to a close, I would like to thank you for your role in a decade of inspiring innovation across Victoria and your continued support of veski.

Our 2013/14 annual review highlights another year of achievement among our veski innovation fellows and across our programs and activities. Notably veski has launched a new inspiring women program and continues to deliver a growing number of prestigious Victorian science and innovation fellowships and awards.

We are also pleased to unveil an online version of veski's 10 year anniversary publication, which we hope you have seen in print, with 20 portraits of innovation. 

I wish you and your family a very safe and happy festive season and a fantastic new year.
