THE INSTITUTION of Electrical Engineers has launched an awards competition designed to recognize innovation in engineering. It is inviting individuals and organizations to submit entries describing an engineering project, product or process that demonstrates genuine novelty and significant technological progress.

Awards will be made in nine main sectors, including manufacturing, electronics, robotics and control, information technology, and electrical technologies. There will also be six cross-disciplinary categories, including project team, emerging technologies, product design, and sustainability.
