Maritime Innovation Award
Innovation is a key to success in all sectors of the maritime industry and the research carried out by engineers and scientists in universities and industry can be critical to pushing forward the boundaries of design, construction and operation of marine vessels and structures.
The Maritime Innovation Award is presented by the Institution, in association with QinetiQ, to acknowledge outstanding scientific or technological research in the areas of hydrodynamics, propulsion, structures and material. The award recognises innovations that offer the potential to make significant improvements in the design, construction and operation of marine vessels and structures.
The Award of £1,000 is made annually to either an individual or an organisation, in any country. Nominations for the Award may be made by any member of the global maritime community, and will be judged by a panel of members of the Institution and QinetiQ. The Award will be announced at the Institution’s Annual Dinner.
