The IET Innovation Awards recognise excellence across 15 categories, covering science, engineering and technology.

The free to enter scheme is open to any individual, company or organisation who is doing something that will introduce a step change and that contributes to better ways of doing things, enhancing performance or adding more value.
 
“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,” said Nigel Fine, chief executive of the IET.
 
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 awards ceremony and gala dinner in London on 20 November.
 
The deadline for entries is 26 July.
