Manufacturing Productivity Improvement
Improving UK manufacturing productivity will be key if the sector is to continue to compete on the global stage. This award celebrates the teams and individuals who have made a demonstrable improvement to their site’s productivity, either through the application of technology or the improvement of existing processes.
Manufacturing Technology Innovation
From the deployment of additive manufacturing techniques and robotic systems to the smart use of machine tools, the innovative application of production equipment is key to making the UK manufacturing base more nimble, more productive and more efficient. This award celebrates teams or projects that demonstrate an outstanding application of manufacturing technology.
Net Zero Champion
The push for net zero by 2050 is a key driver of innovation across industry and is fundamentally reshaping the way that engineering and manufacturing organisations at every level of industry operate. This award will go to an industry individual or organisation at the forefront of successfully delivering on this challenge.
Rising Star of the Year
The Rising Star award is awarded to an engineer who shows that age and experience are no barriers to success. Winners will demonstrate maturity and experience that belies their years and will be performing on a par with – or even ahead of – more experienced colleagues. Entrants for this category should be nominated by their employer rather than by themselves.
R&D Project of the Year
This category is designed to celebrate successful product research and development projects that, while they may not yet be complete, have nonetheless delivered measurable design successes.
This category does not require evidence of a finished or commercially-available product. Instead, judges will be looking for evidence of success in the form of:
• Commercial interest (pre-orders or similar)
• Successful prototypes • Patents or other IP
• Technological breakthroughs
Please also include information relating to the history of the project (complete with dates and design brief), as well as the individuals involved.
This award celebrates individuals (or organisations) who - through outreach, internal programmes, or other initiatives - have done the most to champion engineering careers and inspire young people to consider entering the profession.
Training & Development Award
Against a backdrop of accelerating technological change, it’s never been more important for organisations to ensure that they are equipping their workforce with the skills and expertise required to compete in this rapidly changing world. This award celebrates the achievements of a team or organisation that best demonstrates excellence in the training and development of its engineering staff.
