Applications are now open for the Hawley Award for Engineering Innovation. An engraved medal, certificate and £5,000 prize will be presented to an individual who has personally produced an engineering innovation that has demonstrable benefits in the drive to achieve Net Zero Carbon by 2050.
The award is open to individuals who are resident in the UK, a member of a recognised Professional Engineering Institution and in their early career as an engineer or scientist. To enter, your innovation must be at a stage where a prototype has been developed or proof of concept demonstrated, and there is an expectation that the technology will be developed commercially. It must also be based on work that was undertaken after the award of a graduate or post-graduate degree from a recognised UK university or during study for a post-graduate degree. (Work undertaken for a BSc or MEng will not be eligible.) The deadline for applications for the 2023 Award is 16 April 2023.
The Hawley Award was established in 2016 and is presented by the Engineers Trust, the Trust Fund of the Worshipful Company of Engineers, at their Annual Awards Dinner in July.
Full details of the award, including how to enter, and information about previous winners, is available on the Engineers Trust website.
