Scottish Area Innovation Awards 2019 (Update: Deadline for application is 31 January 2019)

Nov 30, 2018

The Institute of Water provides a stage on which to recognise Innovation in the UK water and sewerage sector.  The National Innovation Awards give a much needed spotlight for the many innovative individuals and companies within the water sector to demonstrate their excellence, and are just part of the commitment the Institute of Water is making to promote the right cultural environment and encourage pride in the sector.
Each year, each Area of the Institute holds a regional innovation competition and the finalists from each are short-listed for the National Award. The Award is presented at the President’s Dinner during a prestigious ceremony where water sector experts from across the UK gather together to celebrate innovation in the water sector. Any innovation that can be seen to benefit the water industry is welcome.


The Scottish Innovation Awards are open to all individuals, teams or organisations that operate within the Scottish Area of the Institute of Water which comprises the operational areas of Scottish Water. You do not need to be a member of the Institute of Water to enter.

For further information and to request an application form, applicants should email:


A master judging panel will decide who will be shortlisted. The shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend the Scottish Area President’s Dinner on 27th April 2019 where the winner will be announced.

The winner is then put forward to represent the Scottish Area at the National Innovation Awards which will be held in Belfast in June 2019.
