Andreas honoured with Australian Leadership Award

Congratulations Andreas, who tonight was awarded with a 2013 Australian Davos Connection (ADC) Australian Leadership Award. The evening was highlighted by an address given by The Hon Julia Gillard MP, Prime Minister of Australia.

Andreas, joins 18 other recipients of the award this year, who have been recognised by the ADC Future Summit for their outstanding new talent. The Award recognises young leaders for their work across a spectrum of Australian life – economy, culture environment or community – and for their demonstrated vision for Australia’s future. We also congratulate Andreas’s research collaborator Professor Jian Li (Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences), who is also a recipient of the award in 2013.

The ADC is a wholly Australian, non-political, not-for-profit organisation bringing together leaders from business, government, the public sector, academia and the broader community to improve their understanding of key issues affecting Australia. These include:

  • Promoting business excellence by encouraging policy debate on global issues;
  • Improving the quality of leadership in Australia;
  • Enhancing Australia’s position in the region and the world;
  • Encouraging Australian leaders to help improve the quality of life of all Australians;
  • Encouraging Australia to play a responsible, and leadership role within the global community;
  • Exposing Australian leaders to international experts and key international leaders.
