Business and innovation
The IOP Business Awards recognise the vital role physics and physicists play in our economy, creating jobs and growth by powering innovation to meet the challenges facing us today, ranging from climate change to better healthcare and food production. Applications for the 2022 IOP Business Awards are now open.
This is the tenth year of the IOP Business Awards, which have celebrated the achievements of more than 70 companies during that decade. Watch our video celebrating innovation and excellence since 2012.
The IOP Business Awards are awarded in three categories:
- Business Innovation Award
- Business Start-Up Award
- Lee Lucas Award for early-stage medical and healthcare companies
We also award three prestigious medals and prizes to individuals for their contribution to the application of physics in an industrial, commercial or business context. These are the Katharine Burr Blodgett, Dennis Gabor and Clifford Paterson medals and prizes.
