ICIS launches eighth Innovation Awards
At last - after weeks of preparation I can officially launch the ICIS Innovation Awards 2011. This annual competition, now in its eighth year, recognises outstanding technological and business innovation in the chemical industry.
Dow Corning is the overall lead sponsor for the Awards, as it has been from their inception in 2004. CRA returns as the sponsor of the Best Product Innovation category, and U.S Chemicals is again sponsor of the Innovation with Best Environmental Benefit category.
Joining the sponsors this year is global health, nutrition and materials major DSM, which is supporting the new category of Best Innovation for Sustainability.
The Innovation Awards continue to grow and gain industry support. We have added a new sponsor and new category this year and look forward to being able to highlight the very best of innovation in the industry later in the year.
There is tremendous effort and investment going into innovation in the chemical sector today, as companies seek answers to many of society’s global problems.
The Awards are open to entry from today, with a deadline for entries of 4 July 2011. The winners will be announced on 17 October.
