Research Hub Wins National Innovation Award

Griffith’s Research Hub has been recognised with the prestigious 2012 VALA Award in Melbourne last night for its innovative use of information and communication technologies.

VALA, an organisation that promotes the use and understanding of information technology in Australia, singled out the Research Hub for its ground-breaking delivery of an informative guide detailing the University’s areas of academic expertise.

The Research Hub site was launched in June following a 12-month development stage, and allows users to search for Griffith’s academic staff, their publication histories and research projects.

The VALA Award is presented every two years to an Australian library or information service, with previous recipients including the State Library of Queensland and RMIT Publishing.

Visit the Research Hub website to get a first-hand look at the award-winning tool.
