Design groups have yet to be approached by the Department of Trade and Industry, to create a new identity for the newly named Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, formerly the Queen’s Awards to Industry.
The name change follows a six-month review led by HRH The Prince of Wales into the scheme.
A restructure of the initiative will include the creation of a new marque. No groups have been formally approached to pitch, according to a spokesman for the DTI.
“We will implement the changes as soon as possible, but it will be for the Review Committee to oversee the new look,” he says.
The revised scheme will be divided into three categories: international trade, innovation and environmental achievement. A new look is expected to be in place by 31 October, when applications open for 2000.
