LeicestershireLive Innovation Awards 2021

In it’s third year, the LeicestershireLive Innovation Awards 2021 will celebrate the very best technology, services, digital advances, and creative thinking that the region has to offer. We want to celebrate the individuals, teams, businesses and public sector bodies that are leading the way in research and development and in manufacturing techniques, software and digital technologies. Alongside this we also want to honour the engineers and construction specialists who are shaping our world.

The awards which are headline sponsored by Morningside Pharmaceuticals, University of Leicester and De Montfort University launch on Friday, November 20, 2020. After the nomination closing date on Friday, April 9, 2021, three finalists will be shortlisted into each category by the judging panel. The shortlisted finalists will then be visited by the judges, and present their innovations at the finalists and sponsors event on Tuesday, June 8 before the winners of each category are selected.

The awards itself will take place on Thursday, June 24, 2021 and will include guest speakers and an exhibition providing our 2021 finalists and sponsors to showcase their work to attendees.
