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 Built Environment Innovation Award category can relate to any aspect of the built environment including design proposals; system improvements or developments; installation methods; innovative use of new materials; product innovation; operation and maintenance of systems and equipment or components; and all other aspects relating to the built environment.
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.”
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.
