The Australian National Fabrication Facility is now accepting applications for the 2024 Frater Awards. 

The Frater Awards are an annual professional development award given to exceptional ANFF staff to foster technical and professional growth via national or international activities. The awards are named in honour of Dr Robert Frater AO, ANFF’s first chairman, who keenly supported the development of young researchers throughout his most distinguished career in advanced microelectronics and as CSIRO Deputy CEO. 

Staff are encouraged to apply for a 2024 Frater award. Team applications will also be considered, including those that are multi-node or multi-hub.
