We’ve launched new awards to celebrate the engineering teams responding to societal challenges

We’re looking for teams of engineers of all types and sizes, including multi and cross-discipline to enter.

The Impact in Society Awards are split into three categories:

Sustainability and climate change

Is your team working to help secure a zero-carbon future?

Digital futures

Are you working in collaboration with colleagues to develop digital products, promoting professional ethics and trust?

Healthy lives

Are you working in a team, providing solutions for assisted living or innovating with robotics in healthcare?

You can be located anywhere in the world and be from any part of the industry. There is no limit to the number of individuals in a team, and junior members, such as apprentices and early career technicians, are eligible for inclusion too.

The Awards have been launched to celebrate the teams of unsung heroes who are making an ongoing difference to the world around us. We want to celebrate the art of collaboration in engineering workspaces.

We also want to improve the public’s understanding of the importance of engineering to society by highlighting exceptional teams that will help inspire the next generation of engineers and technicians.

The winning team will be presented with a trophy at the Impact in Society awards ceremony in Spring 2023, where finalists will have the opportunity to network with other inspirational engineers, along with the Chief Executive and Secretary of the IET.

Applications close on 9 December 2022.
