Latest recipient

The 2017 Scott Medal was awarded to two recipients. 

Professor Kim Pickering FIPENZ, University of Waikato, for her development of composite materials that are more sustainable. Many composite materials are not biodegradable or recyclable, but she has used more sustainable materials as fibres for reinforcing, for example hemp, wood and harakeke or New Zealand flax. 

Professor Ian Woodhead, Lincoln Agritech, for advancing electronic engineering, particularly in developing sensors for the agricultural and environmental sectors, including an electric fence performance sensor, and an electronic soil moisture sensor that allows for more efficient irrigation systems.
