The Federal Minister for Communications, Information Technology and the Arts, Senator Helen Coonan, and Tasmanian Premier Paul Lennon today welcomed the appointment of a panel to recommend applications for funding under the Market Access and Partnerships Program (MAPP). The seven person panel includes Matthew Michalewicz, CEO Of SolveIT Software.
“This is an important step in progressing MAPP in Tasmania, an initiative which will benefit both the Tasmanian ICT industry and the wider Tasmanian economy,” Senator Coonan said. “The panel members have been appointed on the basis of their wide-ranging experience and expertise in technology, finance, management and commercialisation.”
Mr Lennon said: “This industry-based panel will assess applications against the Market Access and Partnerships Program’s selection criteria and will make recommendations to the Intelligent Island Project Executive. Their expertise and experience will be instrumental in identifying the best and most promising applications from the Tasmanian ICT industry.”
