About the IET Innovation Awards


The Innovation Awards, the IET’s annual prestigious awards ceremony, celebrate the very best innovations from both industry and academia, sharing landmark work and developments taking place across so many important areas of science, engineering and technology.

There are 15 categories within the awards spanning the length, breadth and depth of engineering and each of them is judged by a panel of individual, impartial experts in each field that our categories cover.

The awards are entirely inclusive and are open to any individual, company or organisation anywhere in the world with any idea, product or technology development.


What the awards can do for you

The IET offers plenty of benefits to both shortlisted entries and winners alike with extensive opportunities:

  • Fantastic media coverage by the IET’s dedicated PR agency
  • Your entry listed in E&T magazine, circulated to the IET’s 167,000 members
  • The bespoke opportunity to network with other innovators and showcase your innovation at our popular and prestigious award ceremony
  • Innovation Award winners receive a personalised trophy and additional media coverage after the ceremony


The Innovation Awards attract over 400 entries each year and are growing in size, popularity and prestige in the engineering and technology community, with a further 500 guests attending the ceremony dinner to celebrate the successes of those shortlisted entries.

Past winners regularly use the accolade of receiving an Innovation Award to further their product development, business growth and engineering reputation.
