The Innovation Award will honor the NEPIC member company or Innovate Tees Valley programme participant that has pursued game-changing ideas – across product, process and service – within the chemical-processing industries and associated supply chain.
The Award will be judged on how innovative the idea is, how the organisation adopted it and its overall business impact. We are looking for a clear demonstration of a significant improvement in sustainability, resource utilisation, along with market entrance and business growth.
As well as receiving a trophy to mark the winner’s success at the prestigious NEPIC Annual Awards Dinner, held at Hardwick Hall on the evening of Friday 18 January 2019, the winning organisation will also receive £2,000 to donate to a local school of their choice to fund a science related project – a wonderful way to raise your company’s profile within your local community and attract future talent to the sector.
For this award, scale is not an issue as we recognise that many products, processes and services can be low volume but very high value. Collaboration projects welcomed. Applications welcomed from member companies and programme participants including SME Growth & Innovate Tees Valley.
To apply, companies should submit a 750-word article demonstrating significant improvement in sustainability, resource utilisation along with market entrance and business growth.
Entries should be submitted electronically, clearly stating your organisation name and the category in which you are applying for on the top of the document. Entries should be submitted along with a completed application form (see below).
All entries are to be submitted by close of business on Friday 21 December 2018.
All entrants will be notified early January as to the success of their application.
