Government awards celebrate innovation

The deadline for the Iawards, the first-ever Government-backed awards to celebrate achievements in science, innovation and technology, is 16 September.

There are 13 categories in the Iawards, including digital communications and consumer product.

Entry to the awards, which are run by the Department for Business Innovation & Skills, is open to all organisations, but they must have a British involvement.

Winners of the awards will be helped by UK Trade & Investment to meet potential business partners at key events such as the Medica trade fair in Germany.

The awards will be judged by a cross-industry panel led by Dragons’ Den star James Caan.
