The MAV Technology Innovation Fellowship is a $10,000 grant provided by MAV Technology to advance a current or proposed ICT, GIS or information management project.
The MAV Technology Innovation Fellowship is awarded to advance the local government ICT/GIS/RM project that most successfully:
• demonstrates outstanding innovation;
• advances the objectives of the MAV Technology Strategy;
• supports council business objectives; and
• influences or assists other councils to improve service delivery.
The fellowship grant can be used to fund current or proposed ICT/GIS/RM projects. The grant may be awarded to more than one project (totalling $10,000).
The MAV Technology Executive Committee implement and support projects that will positively impact council business priorities in economic development; community services; governance and corporate services; planning and infrastructure; and environmental sustainability.
Fellowship submissions are assessed by independent judges in regard to how well they:
• demonstrate outstanding innovation, effort and outcomes;
