Highlighting excellence and innovation

Recognising Excellence and Innovation

The annual CAUDIT Awards highlight excellence and innovation across the Australasian tertiary education and eResearch sectors. The CAUDIT Awards recognise, celebrate and promote the outstanding achievements and innovation of staff working in IT at CAUDIT member Institutions. These staff have applied digital capabilities to positively transform the experience of students, academics and professional staff. 

There are four categories in the CAUDIT awards, and individual and group submissions are invited for three of the four categories. The fourth category – the Emerging Leader category - is for individuals who display vision and have the motivation and desire to lead colleagues.

The CAUDIT Awards categories for 2024 are :

  • Enhancing the Student Experience,
  • Excellence in Research Support,
  • Operational Excellence, and
  • Emerging Leader.

Awards Ceremony

All Award recipients will be announced at the Awards Ceremony being held on 14 October 2024 at the CAUDIT Spring Members' Meeting in Adelaide, South Australia. We encourage Member Representatives to attend the event and celebrate the accomplishments of the nominees and finalists. 

CAUDIT will fund the Emerging Leader category finalists' registration to the CAUDIT Spring Members' Meeting and CAUDIT Awards dinner (accommodation and air fares at Member cost). Award sponsors are also invited to this event.
