(the) KuDos judging process ensures credibility and prestige for the awards

Here’s how it works:

  • Five expert conveners will be appointed to judge the Engineering Science Award, Environmental Science Award, Medical Science Award, Science Educator Award and Science Manager Award.
  • These five conveners are responsible for putting their ‘judging team’ together, which will include one additional judge from within New Zealand and one international judge. All judges will have expertise in that discipline.
  • The five conveners will, together, be responsible for judging the Lifetime Achievement Award, Innovator/Entrepreneur Award.
  •  Judges will remain confidential.
