About the Fellowships
In conjunction with AFAS Victoria, FEAST-France awards up to three AFAS FEAST-France Fellowships each year to Victorian researchers wishing to undertake a study tour to France. These fellowships are granted as a complement to the Victoria Fellowships awarded by the Victorian Government.
This year marked the 10th anniversary of the Victoria Prize and Fellowships, and the 4th presentation of the AFAS FEAST-France Fellowships.
Following a welcome glass and hors d'oeuvres in the vestibule, all guests were ushered into the auditorium to be officially welcomed by the Honorary President of AFAS Victoria, John Acton. This was followed by a short introduction to FEAST-France by Professor Michel Thibier, Scientific Counsellor at the French Embassy, and a further comment by Wendy Williams of the Victorian Department of Innovation, Industry & Regional Development.
Three past fellowship recipients then gave short presentations on their study tours — Richard Barber (2004), Hayley Newton (2005) and Paul Stoddart (2006).
Introductory comments regarding each of the Fellows for 2007 were then delivered by Michel Thibier, following which the award certificates were presented.
