The ICIS Innovation Awards seek to recognise and reward companies that show high levels of innovation in products, processes and ways of doing business, as well as providing benefits to the environment and sustainability. Winners will have made significant steps forward in technological and business innovation, with tangible results during 2014 and 2015.
To ensure we identify the very best in innovation from the global chemicals industry, we have enlisted a panel of seven leading innovation experts from the industry, who will select the winners in each of five categories and an overall best innovation for 2015.
ICIS is pleased to have Roland Berger Strategy Consultants as the overall sponsor again this year and to welcome back U.S. Chemicals as a category sponsor. We are also delighted to welcome ExxonMobil Chemical as a new category sponsor for 2015.
The ICIS Innovation Awards are organised into five categories, to reflect the type of innovation and the size of the company entering. More details of the categories and the short-listed entries in each can be seen here:
