Queensland Government Sponsors Medal

The Queensland Government's Department of Innovation and Information Economy has recently confirmed its sponsorship of the 2003 National Pearcey Medal.

This commitment comes after the Queensland Minister for Innovation and Information Technology, Hon. Paul Lucas, accepted an invitation to become the honorary Queensland Patron for the Pearcey Foundation.

The Minister was delighted with the establishment of the Pearcey Foundation in Queensland saying it would "complement government initiatives aimed at increasing availability of skills in this (ICT) area".
