Community involvement

Taking part
giving back

As a company, Marinova is passionate about supporting the communities in which it operates. In addition to the employment opportunities that we create in regional and disadvantaged communities both in Australia and overseas, we contribute to a variety of cultural, educational and charitable programs.

Science education

Marinova is passionate about science. We are equally passionate about encouraging students to pursue studies in science-related disciplines, particularly those that focus on human health and disease. To further this cause, Marinova contributes to a variety of educational initiatives, ranging from high school bursaries to PhD sponsorships. Each year the company awards the prestigious Marinova International Science Prize to an outstanding Tasmanian secondary school student and supports an early career biotechnologist through the Marinova Graduate Program. 

With their abundance of expertise, the Marinova team regularly give their time to present to schools, universities and local community organisations on a diverse range of topics within the field of marine biotechnology. Our staff volunteer their time to mentor emerging talent in areas as diverse as international marketing to laboratory procedures.

We believe that business enterprises play a vital role in fostering healthy, vibrant communities. Marinova is a proud supporter of local science and education-based initiatives such as the Handfish Conservation ProjectDevils @ Cradle, the Tasmanian Quoll Conservation Program, the Flinders Island Wombat Fund, the Festival of Bright Ideas, Tasmanian Science Investigation Awards, the Beacon Foundation, the Cross-Pollinate Conference, the Sustainable Living Expo and Medical Research Week. The company is also a Founding Partner of Friends of Bonorong and working together with other likeminded businesses to support native Tasmanian wildlife.
