By ADRIAN MILLER

THE Northern Rivers Regional Development Board (NRRDB), along with Invest Northern Rivers, has announced the creation of an award to encourage and help innovative businesses and individuals throughout the Northern Rivers.

Announced at yesterday's Creative Industry Development Workshop in Grafton, the INR Technology and Innovation Award is designed to provide practical assistance to the win- ners, in terms of money and professional services.

NRRDB chair Margot Sweeny said the award would provide individuals and businesses with the assistance to further develop their products.

NRRDB executive director Katrina Luckie said the announcement had been well received at the Creative Industry Development workshop held at the Community Centre.

She said the workshop had been a success and had enabled people involved in creative in- dustries throughout the Clarence Valley to come together and share ideas.

"It was a really productive, positive day," she said.
