The TALI training program has once again been recognised as a prime example of a successful industry and academic collaboration.

The TALI team received an Honourable Mention in the ‘Best Research Translation’ category of the Business/Higher Education Round Table (B/HERT) Awards at their awards dinner, which was held at Melbourne’s Crown Palladium on Tuesday 15 November 2016.

The B/HERT Awards recognise outstanding achievement in collaboration between business and higher education in the fields of research & development and education & training. The objective of the program is to highlight at a national level the benefits of such collaboration and enhance links between industry and universities.

The Research Translation Award is a brand new initiative for the B/HERT Awards program and was introduced to recognise successful translation of research activity, leading to commercialisation outcomes.

Based on over 25 years of research, TALI Train is a ground-breaking game-based training programme for young children, designed by neuroscientists at Monash University, and developed by game producers Torus Games and software engineers Grey Innovation. After acquisition by Avexa Limited in 2016, TALI Train has become the company’s lead product and is anticipated for a full commercial launch in 2017.
