At Morningside innovation is at the heart of our business, as we have a history of using innovation to bring greater choice to both pharmacists and patients, by developing new ways for patients to take their medicines.
We’re delighted to be the Headline Sponsor of the LeicestershireLive Innovation Awards once again, which is a great way to recognise some of the ground-breaking innovations taking place in our county.
Every year the Innovation Awards become more relevant to Leicestershire businesses’ health and growth. Not to mention the prosperity of our local communities. Investing in innovation delivers a number of important benefits, such as improving customer experiences, increasing efficiency and productivity, as well as scaling-up new ideas and gaining a commercial advantage in a competitive world.
Businesses which seek to make continuous improvements, close the biggest gaps and identify the newest opportunities; are often the ones that will have the most sustained success.
We would like to invite Leicestershire businesses and innovative start-ups to apply for the awards. As trailblazers for innovation in our county you will play a vital role in the area’s economic and social future.

University of Leicester
The University of Leicester is delighted to be the joint headline sponsor and two category sponsors of the LeicestershireLive Innovation Awards 2021.
For nearly 100 years, the University of Leicester’s pioneering research and innovation has transformed lives by delivering local, national, and global impact. As the University enters its second century, innovating for positive change will continue to play a role at the heart of our activities.
Innovation is a key enabler to our goal of being Citizens of Change. We believe in developing strong partnerships with organisations from across both the public and private sectors, and supporting them to innovate, grow and flourish.
We have invested in the Leicester Innovation Hub, a dedicated incubation and innovation space to support businesses to launch great ideas. We are also developing Space Park Leicester in collaboration with local, national and international partners, which will provide state-of-the-art, high-tech facilities for research, development and manufacturing.
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.
