The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) has launched a worldwide search for the best engineering innovations via its awards programme – the IET Innovation Awards.
The Innovation Awards recognise excellence across 15 categories, which span the breadth of science, engineering and technology. The free-to-enter, international annual awards are open to members and non-members of the IET and celebrate innovative engineering excellence.
Entries to the Energy Innovation Award category are welcomed from universities, clients, consulting engineers, contractors, suppliers and component manufacturers. The category will award innovations where development has reached the stage where its potential has been clearly identified. Submissions may include any innovation associated with power (energy) and its uses.
The Innovation Awards, now in their ninth year, are renowned for raising the profile of their winners and bringing them to a wider audience. Many former Innovation Awards winners report increased interest in their products as a result of winning the accolade.
Nigel Fine, Chief Executive of the IET said:
“These awards recognise the most outstanding innovations across science, engineering and technology celebrating the contribution made by engineers and technicians to enhance people’s lives everywhere.
“The IET is passionate about promoting engineering excellence and the Innovation Awards are a great opportunity to showcase some of the very best work taking place around the world.”
Each category of the Innovation Awards is independently judged by a panel of experts in that field, with the shortlist announced each October. Winners will be revealed at a celebrity-hosted glittering Awards Ceremony and Gala Dinner in London at The Brewery on 20 November.
There are still some sponsorship opportunities available. Sponsorship of the Innovation Awards provides profile opportunities within the global engineering, science and technology community.  Contact Mandy Mercer for details.
