Calling young innovators!

Aug 1, 2022

Young people can share the stage with engineering’s top names by entering The Engineer magazine’s Young Innovator award.

Now in its seventh year, the Collaborate to Innovate (C2I) Awards competition was launched to uncover and celebrate great examples of engineering collaboration – a dynamic critical to addressing many of the challenges and problems faced by society.

The Young Innovator trophy, part of The Engineer’s 2022 annual C2I Awards competition, is open to individual students or school teams, and aims to uncover and celebrate the UK’s most innovative and collaborative engineering projects.

Do you know an award-winning young innovator?

Entries are invited from projects addressing challenges across 8 categories, including automotive, aerospace, defence and security, information, data and connectivity healthcare and medical energy and environment, and manufacturing technology.

Previous winners have included former Big Bang winner Freddie Howells, who invented a home security system for people with dementia.

EngineeringUK’s Director of Business Development and Partnerships, Dr Isabel DiVanna, is on the judging panel alongside representatives from across the engineering industry and research councils.

Commenting on the award, Jon Excell, The Engineer’s editor, said: “The Young Innovator prize provides a great opportunity for tomorrow’s engineers to introduce their ideas and projects to an audience of industry leaders. Previous winners have benefited from both extensive media coverage in The Engineer and generous offers of work experience from some of the UK’s leading engineering employers.”

EngineeringUK supports C2I alongside Babcock International, EPSRC, STFC, HVM Catapult, Mazak, Powerstar, Hays Recruitment and Megger.

The closing date for entries is midnight on Friday 14 October and the winners will be revealed on Thursday 23 February 2023 at a special winners party in Westminster.
