The Disruptive Innovation Award
This award will be given to the company that can demonstrate a significant business impact through innovation. This can cover any aspects of innovation whether in business process, manufacturing, service provision or product development.
Criteria will include:
- Business impact
- Novel idea / technology
- Extent of exploitation
While this award could encompass a new product that has developed a new market, it could equally apply to an existing product deployed in a new way; a new manufacturing process technology or the development of a new business model. The common theme running through all of this is an innovative idea or technology that’s been applied to derive real business benefit.
Who can apply?
Open to any company based in and/or operates from UK/Ireland who is able to show real business impact through true innovation.
Online Application Form
The intent of the application process is to acquire sufficient evidence without being burdensome or overly bureaucratic to both applicants and judges. Award candidates are therefore encouraged to provide clear and concise information that is distinctly relevant to the award so that judges are not placed in a position of subjective interpretation.
Where you have worked as part of a team be sure to make it clear in the application how your achievements have been made – judges will not be able to make decisions on inconclusive evidence and will naturally frown upon information interpreted as misleading – therefore, if you worked as part of a team be explicit about what you have done and what was contributed by the team.
All accompanying information should be accurate at the time the application is submitted and should be unlikely to change adversely in a negative capacity in relation to the award before the end of the calendar year.
By submitting an application you confirm that you meet the eligibility criteria set out above.
