Collaborate to Innovate (C2i) Awards 2023

Now in its eighth year, C2I was launched to uncover and celebrate great examples of engineering collaboration – a dynamic critical to addressing many of the challenges and problems faced by society.

The competition is open to innovative technology led projects which are underpinned by collaboration between two or more separate organisations and which have had, or are likely to have, a positive impact in their area of application.

Entries are invited from projects addressing challenges across nine categories, including automotive; aerospace, defence and security; information, data and connectivity; healthcare and medical; energy and environment; and manufacturing technology.

This year’s competition also features two categories focused on the next generation of engineers: Young Innovator (a special category for school student engineering projects) and STEM Initiative (a new category set up to champion efforts to inspire young people to consider a career in engineering).
