IOP Business Innovation Awards

The IOP Business Innovation Awards are the only awards recognising companies in the UK and Ireland that have built success on the innovative application of physics.

The winners of the 2016 Awards were announced at a Parliamentary Reception on 18th October. The 2017 round will open in February.

The IOP Business Innovation Awards booklet contains information about the awards and the 2016 winners.

Why should you enter?

The IOP Business Innovation Awards are a mark of recognition that your company is at the cutting edge of physics and business.

Winning an IOP Innovation Award in recognition of our hard work was not only a major boost for the business, it was a landmark moment for all who contributed to its success.

IOP Innovation Award Winner 2015

The winning companies showcase their innovations at a parliamentary reception and also attend the IOP awards ceremony in London. This provides a platform for winners to engage with leaders in business, policy-making and academia. The winners will also be given the opportunity to explain the physics behind their innovations and show how this has contributed to their success.
