The winners of the 2020 Collaborate to Innovate awards will be unveiled during a special Collaborate to Innovate week, hosted on The Engineer’s website (www.theengineer.co.uk) from 1 to 5 February.
Frazer-Nash Managing Director, Neil McDougall, was a judge for the awards, which celebrate some of the very best in UK collaborations and innovations in engineering over the past year. Neil said:
“So many organisations have been working together in a fast, agile way to respond to the challenges of the pandemic this year, delivering ventilators, vaccines and a host of other solutions to the everyday obstacles that COVID-19 brings. It’s this ethos – of joining forces to develop innovations to meet society’s needs – that each of winners of this year’s Collaborate to Innovate has demonstrated.
“I’m looking forward to celebrating the winners’ achievements during the Collaborate to Innovate week, and to (virtually) presenting the prize to the winner chosen for our ‘Future Thinking’ award, which recognises a ground-breaking technology or solution that has the potential to address society’s challenges now, and in the future.”
Jon Excell, Editor of The Engineer said:
“Now in its fifth year, C2I was established to uncover and celebrate some of the UK’s most innovative and inspiring examples of technology-led engineering collaboration across a range of different disciplines and sectors. In a year in which the COVID-19 pandemic has brought many sectors of the economy grinding to halt, this year’s shortlist – arguably one of the strongest in the competition’s history – provides gratifying evidence that the UK’s culture of innovation and appetite for collaboration is alive and well.”
