"Really chuffed" science prize winners to look for complementary skills
By Peter Kerr for sticK
(sticK - 29 Nov. 2010 ) The winning of $400,000 through the Prime Minister's Science Prize will enable Magritek to bring on a complementary researcher with a different skill set to its development team.
"There is never a finite, limited amount of R&D that you can do," says Dr Andrew Coy, Magritek's chief executive, and leader of the commercialisation company that's taken Victoria University's magnetic resonance research to the world in small scale packages.
"We want to keep growing, and to do that we've got to keep investing in the innovation," he says.
