Prestigious Awards return for Innovation Week 2022

25 November 2021

Following the huge success of the Innovation Awards in September, LeicestershireLive has launched its fourth event dedicated to its local pioneers: the Innovation Awards 2022. Once again these awards will be supported by the Business Gateway Growth Hub.

Celebrating the very best in technology services, digital advances and creative thinking that the region has to offer, these awards will honour those who are leading the way and shaping our world.

After the special ceremony at the National Space Centre in September, there’s no doubt that Leicestershire truly is a hub of innovation and a hotbed of creativity.

Former Gadget Show presenter, TV personality and author Jason Bradbury kept the evening running smoothly as coveted awards went to the genius who helped capture moon-landing images, a specialist air quality company, military-tested earbuds and many more inspiring innovations.

The 2022 awards will take place on Thursday, February 24, 2022, and with innovation the key to the pandemic, there’s no doubt that hundreds of other life-changing inventions are ready and waiting to be recognised and promoted to all. There will be lots of other innovation themed events that same week, part of Innovation Week 2022, aimed at encouraging businesses of any size to think differently about growth.

LeicestershireLive has curated a list of categories that span across many sectors, including technology, design, education, manufacturing and more, to ensure the finest of talent is rewarded.

To be in with a chance of winning one of the 11 prestigious awards, visit this page. Nominations close on Monday, 3 January.

Attending the event in September, University of Leicester President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Nishan Chanagarajah said: “The ideas and creativity displayed by the finalists of the Innovation Awards are truly inspiring and I hope that these awards will encourage more businesses and innovators to follow in their footsteps.”

With 2022 creeping closer, don’t miss out on your chance to see your company’s hard work recognised. Take a look at the categories and criteria and enter today.
