The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) launches this year’s Engineering and Technology (E&T) Innovation Awards and Frazer-Nash is set to support the Excellence in Creating a Smarter World category.
The Excellence in Creating a Smarter World award will be presented to an engineering team, in recognition of a project that demonstrates how smart technology has been used to enhance the user experience. It will champion better intelligent systems for creating a smarter planet: smarter power grids, smarter food systems, smarter water, smarter healthcare, smarter traffic systems, smarter buildings… The list is endless, however all have one thing in common – these smarter systems deliver measurable benefits to companies and communities in the world in which we live.
Commenting on the award, Neil McDougall, who will be a judge for the awards this year, said:
“I am very pleased that we’re continuing to support the IET’s Innovation Awards.
“Engineers have always focused on providing solutions to global problems – from delivering affordable energy and clean water, to empowering communication across vast distances, to ensuring structures are safe.
“The growing number of people on the planet is putting considerable strain on natural and man-made resources. Society is looking for smarter, better and more efficient ways of preserving the planet. This award recognises those innovators who are demonstrating the value of smart technologies in achieving this aim.
“At the heart of Frazer-Nash’s values, is our desire to make a real difference. We’re working together to help deliver a future where society can rely on the essentials that allow us all to enjoy contented, secure lives.
“Clean, sustainable energy systems, staying secure in a changing world, sustainable mobility and developing smart and affordable infrastructure are all areas where we seek to make that difference.”
