IET calls for entries for science, engineering and technology awards
9 July 2012
The Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET) has issued
the final call for entries for its 2012 Innovation Awards, honouring the
most innovative individuals and companies at the forefront of science,
engineering and technology.
Recognising the depth and breadth of innovative work being
carried out across all areas of engineering and technology, at all
stages of development, the IET Innovation Awards span 15 categories.
These include electronics, healthcare and sustainability; and will
be judged by a panel of more than 80 esteemed industry and academic
Tim Hamer, Director of Knowledge at the IET commented:
“Engineering plays a vital role in enriching our daily lives — from
the transport that we take to the electronic devices that we use —
and these awards recognise the most innovative players in industry.
Now in its eighth year, the Innovation Awards are internationally
recognised, attracting some of the most pioneering technology
year-on-year. The debut of the sports technology category this year
is particularly exciting, celebrating the role of science,
engineering and technology in pushing the boundaries of athletic
participation and performance.”
With the 31 July deadline fast approaching, the IET urges
individuals and organisations from all over the world to celebrate
their products and technologies by putting themselves forward today.
The 2012 awards, in recognition of the London Olympics, will
feature the addition of a new category recognising the most
ground-breaking sports technology innovations and applications.
Entry to the Innovation Awards is free and details can be found
The IET will announce the 2012 shortlist in early October ahead
of the prestigious ceremony, to be held at The Brewery, London on
