Get ready to enter the 2015 IET Innovation Awards, the free-to-enter and impartially peer-reviewed awards for all innovative engineers and technologists! These awards recognise and celebrate the very best new innovations in engineering, science and technology.
With 15 award categories including Intelligent Systems, Model-Based Engineering, Power, Manufacturing, Measurement in Action and Transport, there’s something to interest all innovators! Enter your innovation by 3 July 2015.
Need a reason to enter? Let our past winners convince you.
“You can’t buy this kind of recognition.”
“Receiving such recognition is a boost to our international profile.”
“It has lent us a degree of credibility and profiling that would be difficult to attain otherwise.”
What sort of entries win?
The 2014 winners came from industrial and academic organisations of all sizes, and included:
The Model-Based Engineering category was awarded to PRaVDA – a unique imaging and dosimetry instrument for use in treatment of cancer using proton therapy. This brainchild of a consortium of Universities and NHS Trusts from Lincoln, Birmingham, Liverpool and Surrey is beneficial for brain tumours and childhood cancers. It will provide the Holy Grail for radiotherapists – accurate proton computerised tomography (CT) images so eliminating the potential targeting errors of this new treatment.
Arrow Electronics’ SAM Project is the modification of a Corvette C7 Stingray car with integrated advanced electronics and a human-to-machine interface so a qualified quadriplegic driver can safely operate it under racetrack conditions. They won the Intelligent Systems Award. You can see footage of the car in action in our Innovation Showcase video >>
The University of Huddersfield’s Wavelength Scanning Interferometer (WSI) for embedded metrology gained the 2014 Manufacturing Technology Award. It supports future factory targets, moving measurement from standard laboratories to production platforms in order to enhance quality and reduce measurement costs significantly.
Medtronic won the Healthcare Technologies category with an insertable cardiac monitor, the smallest currently available to patients and part of a system that allows physicians to continuously and wirelessly monitor a patient’s heart for up to three years.
